Discussion of Henry David Thoreau’s Life Without Principle


“An efficient and valuable man does what he can, whether the community pay him for it or not (Thoreau, 380)”

What if one day the only jobs left were those that did not get any pay? What if the most important jobs were those that never got any pay? Mothers do not get paid but without the good ones we would be left with horrible people. If we didn’t get paid to do what we do, how many of us would still do that job? How many jobs would still exist? Are we spending our lives efficiently by doing what we love, what serves the most people even if we never get paid? Would you still be working if you never got paid? Is your job that important? Some of us waste our lives doing something we could never love, while we judge others that don’t make much but only do what they love.
