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.
The simplest things are often the truest.
We still do not know one thousandth of one percent of what nature has revealed to us.
If one’s life is simple, contentment will come.
–Dalai Lama (saw him once in Calgary)
Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.
–Frank Lloyd Wright
In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.
Forever is composed of nows.
But what is happiness except the simple harmony between a man and the life he leads?
Come forth into the light of things, let Nature be your teacher.
There are always flowers for those who want to see them.
It is never too late to be what you might have been.
Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing.
Happiness resides not in possessions and not in gold; the feeling of happiness dwells in the soul.
There is enchantment right in front of you, waiting for you to notice.
Nature is painting for us, day after day, pictures of infinite beauty.
Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.
You cannot perceive beauty but with a serene mind.
–Henry David Thoreau
Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity.
Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind.
–Ralph Waldo Emerson
