Simplify


It is wise to seek out virtue as a thirsty man seeks out a cold glass of water. It is also wise to seek simplicity. Thoreau said “Simplify, simplify.” Aim for a skeleton crew and travel light. Those weighed down by complexity cannot move swiftly. In a world where change changes constantly, the one who lives the life of a simple leaf floats gently to the ground, while the overburdened tree crashes down hard. Do not make things harder than they need to be, for they rarely need to be hard.
