To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter... to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring - these are some of the rewards of the simple life.
Live simply that others might simply live.
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.
Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that's creativity.
The greatest wealth is to live content with little.
Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.
I think we are drawn to dogs because they are the uninhibited creatures we might be if we weren't certain we knew better. They fight for honor at the first challenge, make love with no moral restraint, and they do not for all their marvelous instincts appear to know about death. Being such wonderfully uncomplicated beings, they need us to do their worrying.
George Bird Evans
The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.
