Emerson: On Thoreau

(Photo Credit: Catherine Hall,
[One of the weapons] with which he conquered all obstacles in science was patience. He knew how to sit immovable, a part of the rock he rested on, until the bird, the reptile, the fish, which had retired from him, should come back, and resume its habits, nay, moved by curiosity, should come to him and watch him.                                        --R. W. Emerson, from "Thoreau"
