"Its best to avoid the beginning of evil" - Henry David Thoreau
I strongly agree with Thoreau about doing things yourself. When you complain about not making enough money or struggling to buy a house than read what Thoreau wrote. Thoreau quoted “I have learned that the swiftest traveler is he that goes afoot.” You don't need to work hard for the basics. You can make your own shack for 50 dollars. You can live for a week on ten dollars worth of noodles. Making enough money to live on is not hard. Making enough money to live on comfortably with all of your unnecessary objects that you like to have.
I don't agree with Thoreau that living is easy. Thoreau states that living with basic needs is not a hard task, but in todays modern world living like Thoreau is very difficult. With all of the technology in todays world being up to date with everything is necessary. It is possible but not easy.
