“If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought.”
Peace Pilgrim

“Anything you cannot relinquish when it has outlived its usefulness, possesses you. And in this materialistic age, a great many of us are possessed by our possessions.”
Peace Pilgrim

“Unnecessary possessions are unnecessary burdens. If you have them, you have to take care of them! There is great freedom in simplicity of living. It is those who have enough but not too much who are the happiest. ”
Peace Pilgrim
