By special request, literary boyfriend Henry David Thoreau on the occasion of his 195th birthday.
laphamsquarterly:

Happy Birthday Henry David Thoreau, you delightful curmudgeon! 
Remember when your friend suggested you take the train and you were all “Bah! The swiftest traveler is he that goes afoot.” 
Or that time you got frustrated while fishing and decided, screw it, I’m becoming a vegetarian. 
Boy, you really love walking and really hate trains, don’t you?
That’s cool, Henry, we’ll take a hike with you. It’s your birthday after all!
