"That's been one of my mantras- focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex; you have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it's worth it in the end because once you get there- you can move mountains." -Steve Jobs
"The more you have the more you are occupied. The less you have the more free you are." -Mother Teresa
"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." -Ernest F. Schumacher
"However mean your life is, meet it and live it; do not shun it and call it names. Cultivate poverty like a garden herb, like sage. Do not trouble yourself much to get new things, whether clothes or friends. Things do not change, we change. Sell your clothes and keep your thoughts. -Henry D. Thoreau"
"Simplicity is the most difficult thing to secure in this world; it is the last limit of experience and the last effort of genius." -George Sand "Simplicity is the final achievement after one has played a vast quantity of notes and more notes, it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art." -Francis Chopin
