August 20

Anyone who is engaged in really important things is very simple because he does not have time to create unnecessary things.

Every desire abates, and every vice grows after it is satisfied.
— Henri Amiel

Every new desire is the beginning of a new wish, the beginning of a new sadness.
— Voltaire

Pleasure, luxury — these things you call happiness, but I think that to wish nothing is the happiness of God, and when you wish to have only small things, then you make yourself closer to this divine and high happiness.
— Socrates

Nature requires small things; the existing law requires many excessive things.
— Lucius Annaeus Seneca

People can live without need and without jealousy only when they lead a life of moderation.
