“Unnecessary possessions are unnecessary burdens. If you have them, you have to take care of them! There is great freedom in simplicity of living. It is those who have enough but not too much who are the happiest”
– Peace Pilgrim – American activist 1908 – 1981
“Be grateful for the home you have, knowing that at this moment, all you have is all you need.”
