They return to living deliberately.Emerson felt that man casts off the artificial cocoon he has built himself and enters into reality, "I am glad to the brink of fear. In the woods too, a man casts off his years, as the snake his slough, and at what period soever of life, is always a child. In the woods, is perpetual youth." Thus man returns too his inner youth no matter what his age.
