Scott's Articles, Essays & Rants



"Every man is tasked to make his life, even in its details, worthy

of the contemplation of his most elevated and critical hour.

I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable

ability of man to elevate his life by a conscious endeavor.

It is something to be able to paint a particular picture,

or to carve a statue, and so to make a few objects beautiful;

but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere

and medium through which we look, which morally we can do.

To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts." 

~  Henry David Thoreau
