Setting the tone of Walden

WALDEN-EDE1SS

What quote best sets the tone of Walden?

A

“Most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.”

B

“I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.”

C

"I do not propose to write an ode to dejection, but to brag as lustily as chanticleer in the morning, standing on his roost, if only to wake my neighbors up."

D

“If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.”

E

“be yourself- not your idea of what you think somebody else's idea of yourself should be.”
