If I could have married any man from the past it would have been Henry David Thoreau.
I found him in college and have loved him ever since. If my Monster Baby had been a boy his name would have been Henry David. I kid you not.
Here's why I love Henry.
"To do what you feel is right, when the combined judgement of mankind seems against you, when all the world says no, that requires the ultimate in courageous self-confidence."
Which is how I can justify my writing to people who don't think I have any business writing. This has been with me since college, when other people thought my going to college wasn't worth it either. Lots of uphill battles but I got through...and if I can you can. Write on!
