I have been trying to locate poem by H.D.Thoreau I think which contains the words march to the beat of a different drummer.

Can any one tell the title and where I might find it.

Cheers
Evan

Evan, it's not a poem. It's a famous quotation from Thoreau's book "Walden".
You can read some information about it here:

"If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away."
----- Henry David Thoreau, Walden, Conclusion, 1854

Dear Les,

Fantasic! Thankyou very much.


It is a profound quote from an inspiring fellow.

You don't how much this means to me.

Cheers
