Thoreau wanted to live free from the commotion and greed of greater society. He wanted to commune with nature and live simply,

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."
