Time and eternity (Walden 64)

Yankee Hill, about 5/1/10

On a tributary of Salt Creek, above Yankee Hill Lake, near Lincoln, Nebraska.

“Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in. I drink at it; but while I drink I see the sandy bottom and detect how shallow it is. Its thin current slides away, but eternity remains.”

— Henry David Thoreau, “Where I lived and What I Lived For,” Walden
