“Possessions, outward success, publicity, luxury – to me these have always been contemptible. I believe that a simple and unassuming manner of life is best for everyone, best for both the body and the mind.”― Albert Einstein

 

“And I learned what is obvious to a child. That life is simply a collection of little lives, each lived one day at a time. That each day should be spent finding beauty in flowers and poetry and talking to animals. That a day spent with dreaming and sunsets and refreshing breezes cannot be bettered. But most of all, I learned that life is about sitting on benches next to ancient creeks with my hand on her knee and sometimes, on good days, for falling in love.”― Nicholas Sparks

“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.”― Confucius

“Our life is frittered away by detail. Simplify, simplify.”― Henry David Thoreau,

“Manifest plainness,

Embrace simplicity,

Reduce selfishness,

Have few desires.”― Lao Tzu

“There is no greatness where there is not simplicity, goodness, and truth.”― Leo Tolstoy

“I do believe in simplicity. It is astonishing as well as sad, how many trivial affairs even the wisest thinks he must attend to in a day; how singular an affair he thinks he must omit. When the mathematician would solve a difficult problem, he first frees the equation of all incumbrances, and reduces it to its simplest terms. So simplify the problem of life, distinguish the necessary and the real. Probe the earth to see where your main roots run. ”― Henry David Thoreau
