Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking. - Marcus Aurelius

The greatest wealth is to live content with little” - Plato

“He is rich who is content with the least, for contentment is the wealth of nature” - Socrates

“The greatest wealth is poverty of desires” - Seneca

“Wealth consists not in having great possessions but in having few wants” - Epictetus

The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it -Henry David Thoreau

This is a matter of freedom. If you don’t have many possessions then you don’t need to work all your life like a slave to sustain them, and therefore you have more time for yourself. - Jose Mujica

want everything, lose everything

“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of the intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the beauty in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that one life has breathed easier because you lived here. This is to have succeeded.”
