Goodness is the only investment that never fails. –Henry David Thoreau  Photo by Kasey Melski Kruser.

In July of 1846, Henry David Thoreau was jailed for refusal to pay his taxes. Although he spent only one night in prison, this experience was the motivation for Thoreau to write one of his most influential works, "Civil Disobedience." Read the rest of this handout on Henry David Thoreau from the Tapestry of Faith curricula "Resistance and Transformation: Unitarian Universalist Social Justice History."
