Kent quoted two passages from Life Without Principle:“If I do this, most will commend me as an industrious and hardworking man; but if I choose to devote myself to certain labors which yield more real profit, though but little money, they may be inclined to look on me as an idler.”“I have walked into such an arena and done my best to make a clean breast of what religion I have experienced, and the audience never suspected what I was about.”

For a few years past I have been accustomed to make a rude sketch in my journal of plants, ice, and various natural phenomena, and through the fullest accompanying description may fail to recall my experience, these rude outline drawings do not fail to carry me back to that time and scene.Thoreau, Journal, IX:174.
