Live your life extraordinarily

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately,

to front only the essential facts of life,

and see if I could not learn what it had to teach,

and not when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.

I did not wish to live what was not life,

living is so dear; nor did I wish to practice resignation,

unless it was quite necessary. 

I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life,

to live so sturdily and spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life.

- Henry David Thoreau
