A Quote by Robert Fulghum on work, life, complexity, and simplicity

Doing a straight-forward, clear-cut task that has a beginning and an end balances out the complexity-without-end that often vexes the rest of my life. Sacred simplicity.

A Quote by Dr. Albert Schweitzer on simple, simplicity, simply, truth, and true

Everything deep is also simple and can be reproduced simply as long as its reference to the whole truth is maintained. But what matters is not what is witty but what is true.

A Quote by Stephen Soderberg on clarity, creativity, design, and simplicity

The hardest thing in the world is to be good and clear when creating anything. It’s the hardest thing in the world. It’s really easy to be obscure and elliptical and so fucking hard to be good and clear. It breaks people. Because you don’t often get encouragement to do that, to be good and clear.

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)
