“Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius — and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.”
E.F. Schumacher

“Wisdom demands a new orientation of science and technology toward the organic, the gentle, the elegant and beautiful.”
E.F. Schumacher, Small Is Beautiful: Economics as if People Mattered

“An attitude to life which seeks fulfilment in the
single-minded pursuit of wealth - in short, materialism - does not fit into this
world, because it contains within itself no limiting principle, while the
environment in which it is placed is strictly limited.”
E.F. Schumacher, Small Is Beautiful: Economics as if People Mattered
