Without change there is no innovation, creativity, or incentive for improvement. Those who initiate change will have a better opportunity to manage the change that is inevitable.
Henry David Thoreau has a innovative way of approaching the page. In the book, Walden by Henry David Thoreau, the idea that Thoreau's innovative ideas have not been matched in so many years is amazing.When a normal writer goes to write they are writing for someone. If it is for a teacher or for friend everyone wants to stick to the general road of writing. Henry David Thoreau does not fall into the category of everyone.
“What everybody echoes or in silence passes by as true today may turn out to be falsehood tomorrow, mere smoke of opinion, which some had trusted for a cloud that would sprinkle fertilizing rain on their fields. What old people say you cannot do, you try and find that you can. Old deeds for old people, and new deeds for new. … One may almost doubt if the wisest man has learned anything of absolute value by living. ”
Here Thoreau is emphasizing the importance of how people relay the is and hope of older generations; he is telling us that the old have no innovation and the new generation has been left nothing, and he uses the theme of innovation to emphasize this theme. He is so famous because he did not walk on the path that had been set by the great writers before him. He calls out every kind of person because we all have our flaws. Henry David Thoreau makes us realize the things about ourselves that we did not know just by turning a page. For Henry David Thoreau his ideas make us all turn a page in our lives.
