Like I have said before, I have really enjoyed reading henry david Thoreau's walden, I especially enjoyed this reading. Getting into the clothing part, the biggest thing that i took away from this part of the reading was how every person has an image. But your clothes are kind of like your cover, and everybody knows that you should not judge a book by its cover. So, what Thoreau was saying that, you should not really buy all these fancy clothes so that you can get the girls, or maybe buy fancy cloths to give the appearance to people that you are rich. Also he was saying do not let your clothing creat your image, you should find your style, and what works with you, and stick with it. My favorite part of clothing was how at the very end Thoreau says, “In the long run men hit only what they aim at. Therefore, though they should fail immediately, they had better aim at something high." This reminds me of a Wayne Gretzky quote, which is, "you miss one hundred percent of the shots that you do not take." What these two quotes mean to me is that, you should aim for high goals, because if you do not try, you defiantly know that you will obtain those goals, but if you do, you never know what might happen. At least you have a chance. Getting into the second part of the reading shelter, what i took away from this part was how shelter is now one of the things that is truly necessary, mostly because most people do not know what it is like to be without it, and how hard it is. But also, like personalities and clothing types, there are many different types of shelter, and each type can work for different people. Like native americans in wigwams or tipis. Also, shelter is everywhere, everybody has or uses a shelter of some kind. But, to what extent is shelter necessary, do you really need the four story mansion with a pool in the back yard when you live right next to the beach. Also, it is part of human nature to at least try to be better than other humans, like Thoreau said, a man may be in debt for the. Rest of his life, just so he could have a house like his neighbors. Here is another point, shelter can be expensive, so why live your life thinking about how you are going to come up with the money to keep on paying loans for that giant house with the pool and the hot tub. When you can go into the woods and build your own house for less than a fraction of the price and with no rent. You don't always have to be as good as your neighbors or your friends, everybody has different situations, some people have families to feed as well, while others live alone. Some people are farmers, and may not make as much as the business man makes. I felt like so far, all of Thoreau's chapter have been linked together in a way, I really enjoyed reading clothing and shelter and I believe that most things that Thoreau has said in these is still true today, they both bring up the question, what do you really need to live.
