Thank you, Colin. :) I had heard the saying all my life but only recently found out where it came from! I got through high school and college without reading much of value -- very few of the classics. Trying to catch up now. :)
I was referring to the Thoreau quote about the different drummer as well as the title quote :))
The Thoreau quote resonates strongly with me, Patti! My wife had a plaque made for my boat with those wise words on it and my email persona is jazzdrummer2 :>). It's a great pic to accompany the quote. Thank you!
Thank you, Budgy.
How true, but not too wide for man to be able to stuff it up unfortunately. budgy
Oh, neat, Pat!
Looks like one of the pictures I have of the lake we go too
Thanks, Shirley. :)
Another great picture, another great quote, Thanks Patti.
Thank you, Jacques, Morris, PG, and CM!
Very nice PLG, (the quote and the photo!)
Relaxing thank you Patti.
Very nice photo. I really like the reflection of the house in the water.
A wonderful quote! Just read it yesterday: "If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away."
No it isn't. I grew up hearing my father speak of Walden and Thoreau. It was an author who he particularly enjoyed. His favorite statement by Thoreau was about marching to the beat of a different drummer. And that he did, my dad. ; )
Thanks, Roseheather. I've been reading Walden on and off. I'm finding that once through is not enough!
He went to the wood to live deliberately. Lovely puzzle to accompany his statement.
