To be free of the discriminating is to manifest miraculous awareness--awareness that is miraculously simple, miraculously unadorned.

A Quote by Antoine de Saint-Exupery on perfection, design, simplicity, and elegance

In anything at all, perfection is finally attained not when there is no longer anything to add, but when there is no longer anything to take away.

A Quote by zaadzster_1 on beauty, simplicity, and modesty

Consider the lilies of the field,
How they grow;
They toil not, neither do they spin;
And yet I say unto you,
That even Solomon in all his glory
Was not arrayed like one of these

A Quote by Yann Martel on life and simplicity

Life on a lifeboat isn't much of a life.  It is like an end game in chess, a game with a few pieces.  The elements couldn't be more simple, nor the stakes higher. Physically it is extraordinarily arduous, and morally it is killing...You get your happiness where you can.  You reach a point where you're at the bottom of  hell, yet you have your arms crossed and a smile on your face, and you feel you're the luckiest person on earth.  Why?  Because at your feet you have a tiny dead fish

A Quote by Tsoknyi Rinpoche on fearless, simplicity, freedom, bodhisattva, spirit, two accumulations, compassion, expands, unity, care for others, know within yourself, and how to be free

    "The true bodhisattva spirit grows out of this personal sense of freedom.  You discover that you don't feel so needy anymore.  You don't crave another refueling - with shamatha or with other people's love and attention - because you know within yourself how to be free, how to be confident.  With this sense of security and freedom, you begin to direct your attention to the needs of others.  The compassion expands.  This is my point about inner simplicity as the basis for living fearlessly in a complex world.
    This principle of fearless simplicity involves training in the two accumulations as a unity and experiencing the fruition of such training.  We have found a true, effective remedy for ego-clinging, negative emotions, the twofold ignorance, and adversity.  We have persevered in the two accumulations, and we have grown confident in liberation.  We are now open and spacious, and from within that sense of fearless simplicity, we can accomadate all phenomena.  We can naturally care for others unpretentiously; no one is a threat any longer."

A Quote by Walter Russell on art, simplicity, simple, god, universe, balance, harmony, majestic, divinity, pair, polarity, polar, rhythm, interchange, and love

"Great art is simple. My universe is great art, for it is simple.
"Great art is balanced. My universe is consummate art, for it is balanced simplicity.
"My universe is one in which many things have majestic measure; and again another many have measure too fine for the sensing.
"Yet I have not one law for the majestic things, and another for law for things which are beyond the sensing.
"I have but one law for all My opposed pairs of creating things; and that law needs but one word to spell it out, so hear Me when I say that the one word of My one law is
BALANCE
"And if man needs two words to aid him in his knowing of the workings of that law, those two words are
BALANCED INTERCHANGE
"If man still needs more words to aid his knowing of My one law, give him another one, and let those three words be
RHYTHMIC BALANCED INTERCHANGE"
