“We were born to succeed, not to fail.” – Henry David Thoreau
That is our life purpose. To follow our calling in our own specially designed way. And so we will succeed, because the measurement is solely on how you uniquely pursue your talents, goals and qualities. Everyone has a different picture of success, his or her own beautiful expression.
Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) was an author, philosopher, poet, abolitionist, and naturalist. He is the author of Walden, which is a philosophical argument for simple living and preservation of natural environment. He also had other important writings on natural history, environmentalism and civil disobedience.
