Simplify - Henry David Thoreau

This quote was added by chris.doughty1
Simplify. Don't waste the years struggling for things that are unimportant. Don't burden yourself with possessions. Keep your needs and wants simple, and enjoy what you have. Don't fritter away your life on non-essentials. Don't enslave yourself for luxuries. A man is rich in proportion to the number of things he can do without. Beware of all enterprises that require new clothes. Live in the present, enjoy the present. Simplify your life. Be not simply good, be good for something.
