Henry David Thoreau Quote – “The millions are awake enough for physical labor…”

The millions are awake enough for physical labor; but only one in a million is awake enough for effective intellectual exertion, only one in a hundred millions to a poetic or divine life. To be awake is to be alive… We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake, not by mechanical aids, but by an infinite expectation of the dawn.

Henry David Thoreau (1817 – 1862)
