...it was once admirable to live"

There are nowadays professors of philosophy , but not philosophers. Yet it is admirable to profess, but it was once admirable to live. To be a philosopher is not merely to have subtle thoughts, nor even to found a school, but so to love wisdom as to live, according to its dictates, a life of simplicity, independence, magnanimity and trust. It is to solve some of the problems of life, not only theoretically but practically. The success of great scholars and thinkers is commonly courtier-like, not kingly, not manly.

Henry David Thoreau from Walden
