Top 49 Most Inspiring Quotes About Simplicity

Looking for the best and inspirational Simplicity quotes?

In the last 20 years, the world has changed. The trend of simplifying life is more and more popular. “Simplicity” is a word that people often use to describe their lifestyle. To live a life of simplicity means that you have no clutter or distractions in your life, and you can focus on the really important things. In contrast, many people struggle with minimalism because they don’t know where to start. They think it’s too hard to maintain for an extended period because they’re unsure what they should get rid of and keep in their lives.

People want to enjoy their lives and not spend too much time thinking about useless things. A leading expert in simplicity and minimalism, John Sheehan said: “I’m not saying we should all give up our careers and live like monks and nuns.” He recommended, “moderating our consumption habits – that’s the key to living simply.”

The world is changing, but some things will never change: stars still shine at night; children still laugh; people fall in love. Here are some quotes about simplicity that will inspire you to achieve clarity in your life.
