Inspiring Quotes Wednesday

Thomas More
The ordinary arts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest.


John V. Cheney
The happiest heart that ever beat Was in some quiet breast That found the common daylight sweet, And left to Heaven the rest.

Hans Hofmann
The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.


E. F. Schumacker

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius—and a lot of courage—to move in the opposite direction.


Albert Einstein
I believe that a simple and unassuming manner of life is best for everyone, best both for the body and the mind.
