‘Tis a Gift to be Simple —

“Simplicity is the utmost sophistication.”– Leonardo da Vinci

    I also adore the line by Mark Twain: “I’d write you a shorter letter, but I didn’t have the time.” Simplicity, brevity, less-is-more; these are where quality lies. 🙂

      Famous line, so true!!!
      I remember some years searching desperately for simple clothes (much more elegant) only always running up against how much more expensive they were than fussy things.

        Yes, so true. However, they will last for years and years; as opposed to the fussy things that will only last for a season (if that). In fact, some French women own suits and dresses worn by their mothers…and they are still considered quite fashionable.

          The problem was (and continues to be) that I can’t afford the initial investment in simplicity and elegance that is the real value. It’s true BTW in furniture and many other things as well as in clothes —
          Take a look at Apple products, come to think of it! Where I have an Apple computer even though it’s more expensive, because it’s worth it in performance AND is gorgeous.
