        1. Lived there for 2 years and months
        2. Thoreau's Life in Walden
          1. Like a test for others on himself (experiment)
            1. Work 2 times as hard until you can support yourself Encourage individuality adn uniqueness (does not want aquaintances to follow his lifestyle - find their own way) People asking for money are not who they percieve them to be (not as hungry or cold as thier appearance makes them seem).
            2. 2 Years passed since living in his self-built house
              1. Simple diet is all we really need - we still retain good health and strength - Man starves out of luxuries (not necessary)
            3. Thoreau Building House
              1. Simplified life - no rush nor deadline given
                1. Built house with little expenses - about $28
                  1. "But a man has no more to do with the style of architecture of his house than a tortoise with that of its shell" (52)
                    1. A house is like a turtle's shell - you don't live there forever, you eventually grow up/get bigger and move out. Like how a turtle grows too big for it shell and does not "fit" into it anymore - leaves to find a new one
                  2. Experienced the "mean and sneaking lives" that many of us live
                    1. Working ourselves to the bone to get money, only to lock it away in a bank
                    2. Multiple jobs before writing this
                      1. Reporter to a journal - no work published Self-appointed inspector of snow and rain storms Looked after wild stock of the town
                    3. Men
                      1. Won't live by fate if it can be avoided
                        1. Laboring men have no leisure for integrity
                          1. Low and primitive condition as men are very focused on unnecessary luxuries
                          2. Public Opinion Vs. Private Opinion
                            1. “See how he cowers and sneaks, how vaguely all the day he fears, not being immortal nor divine, but the slave and prisoner of his own opinion of himself, a fame won by his own deeds”
                              1. People are slaves to their opinions and thoughts of themselves - like a tyrant (takes over the mind and becomes toxic - Whatever one thinks of themselves = their fate
                            2. Old People/Older Generations
                              1. "Old deeds from old people, and new deeds from new"
                                1. Time changes - Newer generations are more advanced and are able to do more than the older generations with the technology that's available.
                                2. Old people do not have any "good" advice to give to the young
                                  1. Believes that since times are changing, the old people’s advice does not apply thus being useless
                                3. "Necessaries of life"
                                  1. Important to human life that few to none can live without it
                                    1. Food, Shelter, Clothing, Fuel
                                      1. Securing these means being prepared to face real problems in life and prospect of success. Luxuries are not improvements but hindrances to mankind elevation
                                  2. Business/Money

                                      1. "Economy is a subject which admits of being treated with levity, but it cannot so be disposed of"
                                        1. Can not be gone or destroyed - a serious issue that is treated lightly (humor)
                                      2. Civilization Vs. Savagery
                                        1. Civilization is an advanced condition of man while savages are "below" civilization and are not advanced men as they are degraded by contact with civilized men
                                        2. Peasant Life Vs. Rich Life
                                          1. Peasant - traveller Rich - something everyone wants and tries to get
                                          2. School/College

                                                    1. Just an illusion; not always positive advancements
                                                  2. Slaves
                                                    1. "It is the pious slave-breeder devoting the proceeds of every tenth slave to buy a Sunday's liberty for the rest" (84)
