Simplicity in Life
“The simplest things are often the truest.”
“Simplicity is the nature of great souls.”
“Simplicity is an art! It is an art of living higher… it is the opposite of its vice.. elegant is opposite the crude.”
“Out of clutter, find simplicity.”
“Less is More.”
~Mies van Der Rohe
“Simplicity, carried to an extreme, become elegance.”
The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life’s plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life.
~Robert Louis Stevenson
Live simply that others might simply live.
As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness.
~Henry David Thoreau
We don’t need to increase our goods nearly as much as we need to scale down our wants. Not wanting something is as good as possessing it.
“Simplicity is the final achievement. After one has played a vast quantity of notes and more notes, it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art.”
“Simplicity is indeed often the sign of truth and a criterion of beauty.”
