“Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influence of the earth.”
Live in the present take the time to embrace everything around you fully immerse yourself in the joy of living; don't rush through life and over complicate things.
“I went to the woods because I wished to live 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."
This man wanted to live humbly and wanted to discover the true purpose of life and foresee beyond the vanity and worldly possessions. If he had not discovered the underlying truth behind life, he states that it would be as if he had not lived at all because there was no purpose to his time on Earth.
