    Simple And Fulfilled

    Thoreau

    "Why should we live with such hurry and waste of life? We are determined to be starved before we are hungry." I also like, "A simple and independent mind does not toil at the bidding of any prince." Both by Henry D. Thoreau- who I would consider the epitome of simplicity

    Needs Vs Wants

    I intend to consume less, to be happy with less, to be content with just myself and nothing else since that's all there will be when I die.
