To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury; and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable; and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasion, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious grow up through the common. This is to be my symphony.William Ellery Channing
I came across this quote the other day at my IRL friend Leah’s blog. It pretty well sums up many of my thoughts on simplicity, stopping to recognize God, and living intentionally.
Have a great weekend everyone!
