7 Reasons Why You Should NOT Invite Thoreau To Your House Warming Party and ONE Reason You SHOULD

1. He Will Give You Crap About Buying A House

Henry David Thoreau is not afraid to tell the world how he feels and tell you how you should live your life. Some may be turned off by his scolding attitude, but the guy has an interesting perspective on how a person should be. After his long two years out in the wilderness, Thoreau has lots to reflect on.

Even though he would make a great camping partner, Thoreau would be the worst person to invite to your house warming party, hands down. And not just because he is celibate and sober.

“As long as possible live free and uncommitted. It makes but little difference whether you are committed to a farm or the county jail.” -Henry David Thoreau

Thoreau believes that owning something, like property or a business, is equivalent to being imprisoned. When you tell him how excited you are to be a new homeowner, all he will do is remind you how you’ll be stuck paying off the house for the rest of your life and probably die there.

Just a bit of a bummer, Thoreau!

He claims that the best way to live is without commitment and free enough to get up and go whenever you please. By owning property, you might as well chain yourself to the front door because it is your own personal, beautifully decorated jail cell.
