In the Where I Lived, and What I Lived for chapter of Walden, Thoreau emphasized that people need to achieve life simple and faint because it eventually helps you know your real terminus and realize the true meaning of life. He begins with his own story he imagines that he works at farms as a farmer and he cargons for seeds in succession. He thinks his farms will bring happiness because all sessions for civilisation are naturally accomplished. However, his imagination ends up with his real financial situation.He wants to deal farms not minding his profit margin but enjoying his m with seeds.

Therefore, he criticizes that fast seems to be effective but it brings wrong feeling and lose our opportunity.He mentions that our decree is pressured to hurry for our life to be successful. However, he thinks that our society now is complicated and dangerous because we do not have ideas of slow and simple to reflect ourselves. All in all, he states that we need time to be slow and simple for our clever intelligent life. This is his obvious viewpoints let us spend one day as delibera tely as Nature, and not be thrown off the track.
