Thoreau Led The Way To Living Simple

Posted on

“As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness.”

The words of Henry David Thoreau

Now there was a guy who understood the basic principles of Living Simple.  As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler!  Wow!  How true are those words?

I have found this to be true in my life over the past six years.  In truth, I have never needed much, but like many people, I have forgotten, from time to time, that simple truth.  What I need and what I want are often two different things.  It is only when those two thoughts become one and the same that I have truly arrived at the place called Living Simple.
