    devote all their time to labor. Thoreau explains this using farmers as an example to back up his argument, suggesting that farmers are chained to their farms as prisoners are chained in jails; in working more than what is necessary, it shackles people down, causing more of a hindrance than individual amelioration. Therefore, Thoreau tells of his preference in abating one 's needs in order to increase one 's means to acquire much needed necessities of food, shelter, clothing, and fuel.…

    He states “I went to the woods because I wished to lived 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” (Thoreau 1101). Thoreau discusses many ideas, all circling one theme, simplified living. His practice of simplicity may be too extreme for most to adhere to, however it is a valuable guideline.

Chris Mccandless wanted to be away from society, where he was able to find peace within himself. The thought of doing the same thing over and over again was just not for him. A person who was very similar to Mccandless was Henry David Thoreau. They both shared similar values, had different results of their actions, and had a few things that they both could’ve learned…

    Without art and beauty of the human being the picture wouldn’t be as inspirational. I personally think that art makes everything more beautiful, especially how the sound of the waves and the symbolic means of the harp create music. It’s the simple things in life that are more meaningful and enjoyable. The creativity shown in just a simple coastal landscape photograph and a little animated cartoon proving hard work pays off is extremely important to me. After analyzing these media, I realize I…
