5 meaningful quotes about living a simpler life

It’s time to share some quotes with you again – quotes of course being one of my favourite things (and I hope yours too!) – this time I have chosen 5 meaningful quotes that may just get you thinking about how living a simpler life can be of benefit.

So, without further ado let’s take a look – I really hope you find at least one of them speaks to you in some way and gets you thinking….


The first saying is one that I wrote a post about a while back, as it really does sum up the simple life if you can take it to heart and live by it:-

meaningful quote simple life“Simplicity boils down to two things – identify the essential and eliminate the rest” – Leo Babauta


meaningful quote simple life 2“Being organized isn’t about getting rid of everything you own or trying to become a different person, It’s about living the way you want to live, but better” – Andrew Mellen

meaningful quote simple life 3“If you look at what you have in life, you’ll always have more. If you look at what you don’t have in life, you’ll never have enough” – Oprah Winfrey

meaningful quote simple life 4“It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy that makes happiness” – Charles Spurgeon

And last but by no means least is one of my favourites. This quote is so true and so poignant – and something I think you get better at as you get older, and it really does make for a simpler life when you don’t try to be someone you’re not – especially if you are just trying to please someone else.

be yourself“Be yourself, everyone else is already taken” – Oscar Wilde
