No method nor discipline can supercede the necessity of being forever on the alert. What is a course of history, or philosophy, or poetry, no matter how wells elected, or the best society, or the most admirable routine of life, compared with the discipline of looking always at what is to be seen? Will you be a reader, a student merely, or a seer.

- Henry David Thoreau, Walden "Sounds"
