Book of Quotes, Number One

Not that this is the world's number one quote, just that it happens to be first in my book of quotes.

“The thoughtful man becomes a hermit in the thoroughfares of the marketplace.” – Henry David Thoreau

I think most people today are afraid of visiting the hermitage of their minds. We don't value uninterrupted contemplation. We distract ourselves with games and entertainment, we constantly chat, text, and twitter. There is much to discover in the terra incognita of our own minds, if we choose to explore them.
