This is one of my favorite quotes by far. It speaks volumes to me about acceptance and the need for understanding in this world. I have a bit of admiration for Thoreau as he was a non-conformist back when being a hipster was NOT cool! He was pre-dialectical before Dialectical Behavioral Therapy was cool! Thoreau was an advocate for finding the middle ground…specifically between nature and culture. He was an avid hiker and a political writer.
As the quote itself goes, I feel that it encompasses a problem I see often in private practice: the struggle that young people have with trekking outside the box. In short, this quote is about seeing past what society labels as desirable or undesirable and being willing to form your own opinions.
