Henry David Thoreau
Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862), U.S. philosopher, author, naturalist. Journals, entry for Oct. 5, 1847 (1906).
Thinking of Ralph Waldo Emerson, who had just set out on his second voyage to England, Thoreau wrote: "I just looked up at a fine twinkling star and thought that a voyager whom I know, now many days' sail from this coast, might possibly be looking up at that same star with me."
