Quote of the Day – To Affect the Quality of the Day

This morning I had the honor of meeting T.A. Barron, an acclaimed novelist living here in Boulder. His amazingly successful life has taken him around the world as a Rhodes scholar, to New York for the venture capital business, and now to Boulder to write best-selling novels and stories. He shared with me this quote from Henry David Thoreau, which I loved:

To affect the quality of the day; that is the highest of the arts.

While looking up Thoreau, I also came across this quote, which I found provocative:

To regret deeply is to live afresh.

    I am reading Walden by Thoreau via DailyLit…my first attempt at reading a book in pieces via email. Interesting concept…it is causing me to read very slowly and think about what I am reading instead of just cruising through it.
