Civil Disobedience -Henry David Thoreau

This essay by Henry David Thoreau is a classic, which inspired Mahatma Gandhi to revolt against the Bristish rulers.
It reminds me, Swami vivekananda quote, "Remember it is the man who makes Laws, and Not the laws make men"
This essays says to follow your consciousness rather than anything else.

A wise man will not leave the right to the mercy of chance, nor wish it to prevail through the power of the majority.Henry David Thoreau
