Henry David Thoreau

Well, there are so many people that I would like to have known, because I admire much people by the way they think and the things that they do in the life, changing the world in some way.
In this time, I choose one of my favorite writers, Henry David Thoreau. He lived in the 19th century, and had a revolutionary way to think for this time, with ideas absolutely valid for our times, between the anarchy and the love of nature. His work influence to the pacifists movements of the past century.
I would like to talk so many things with him, to know what he thinks about this world we live and of our time. Also I would like to talk with him about his life in forest, out of the civilization, ask him how was that experience, how he lived, and why choose that place. For discuss about life and nature.
Well, I think for me was very interesting to know him, because I agree with some of what he writing, his ideas about how the world should be, the authority and the life. He was part on the movement of Transcendentalism, whose ideas I think are very considerable.
Also I would like to share with him the love for the nature, and the importance of this, just for know which was the force that make him just get out of the world of society and advance into the woods and live in the nature, alone (no people).
See you in class :)
