A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on simple life, simplicity, happiness, renunciation, caves, and hermits

Happiness, the goal to which we all are striving is reached by endeavoring to make the lives of others happy, and if by renouncing the luxuries of life we can lighten the burdens of others.... surely the simplification of our wants is a thing greatly to be desired! And so, if instead of supposing that we must become hermits and dwellers in caves in order to practice simplicity, we set about simplifying our affairs, each according to his own convictions and opportunity, much good will result and the simple life will at once be established.

Gandhi (1869 - 1948)
