Simplicity Musings

“One of the most attractive things about the flowers is their beautiful reserve.”~ ~Henry David Thoreau

“It would add very much to the pleasure of life and to its sanctity if we cultivated the habit of seeing what is beautiful and divine in ordinary things, though this is not easy, because our natural tendency is to think and talk most of what is extraordinary.” ~Alfred Rowland

“Flowers… are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty out-values all the utilities of the world.”~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Simplicity involves unburdening your life, and living more lightly with fewer distractions that interfere with a high quality life, as defined uniquely by each individual.” ~ Linda Breen Pierce

If one’s life is simple, contentment has to come. Simplicity is extremely important for happiness. Having few desires, feeling satisfied with what you have, is very vital: satisfaction with just enough food, clothing, and shelter to protect yourself from the elements.” ~ The Dalai Lama

“Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone.  The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials.”~ Lin Yutang

Something to think about~
