I love this beautiful, yet simple writing from David Swing...

"Let us learn to be content with what we have.

Let us get rid of our false estimates, set up all the higher ideals...
A quiet home,
Vines of our own planting,
A few books full of the inspiration of genius,
A few friends worthy of being loved and able to love in return,
A hundred innocent pleasures that bring no pain or remorse,
A devotion to the right that will never swerve,
A simple religion empty of all bigotry, full of trust and hope and love~
and to such a philosophy that this world will give up all the joy it has."


And this one from Henry David Thoreau...

Our life is frittered away by detail.

Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity!


Have an awesome Sunday.

Simplicity, that's what I miss about my childhood! The days were long and fun, playing in the yard:) Being content... Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

Good morning Rebecca,
Both of the quotes that you have posted are brilliant! I have been thinking along the lines of the first quote for a while now. Living a quiet existence with a garden, good friends, great books and good food is what I am aiming for.
I wish for you a blessed day.
Love and warm hugs, Laura
