In 1846 Thoreau began an experiment, "I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and... More > not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. At Walden he learned how to live simply, to care for his daily needs, while also helping a runaway slave on his journey to freedom and being arrested for refusing to pay federal taxes. After the experiment ended in 1848 he delivered a passionate lecture on Civil Disobedience expressing the opinion that when the government's actions violate your conscience you have a duty to not support the injustice. The two works, Walden and Civil Disobedience are credited by Mohandas Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr as impacting their work. Others that have cited Thoreau as a strong influence include Leo Tolstoy, President John F. Kennedy, Justice William O. Douglas, Ernest Hemingway, Upton Sinclair, Sinclair Lewis, and William Butler Yeats.< Less
