I don't usually browse this board but I had a quick question. I'm reading Walden by Thoreau, and in the Economy chapter he says:
>"The student who secures his coveted leisure and retirement by systematically shrinking any labor necessary to man obtains but an ignoble and unprofitable leisure"
What does he mean by this? Specifically the part about shrinking labor necessary to man? I understand the general idea of this section, but this particular phrasing is a bit confusing to me.
Thanks. Pic unrelated.
