Lipton’s Journal/December 1, 1954/9

From Project Mailer

Thoreau’s beautiful lovely statement remark, “The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation,”[1] is said less well, but more accurately by “All of man is like chained tigers wild in the cage of society.”


  1. The most quoted line from Walden; or, Life in the Woods (1854) by Henry David Thoreau (1817 – 1862).
