Book cover for The Year of Less: How I Stopped Shopping, Gave Away My Belongings, and Discovered Life Is Worth More Than Anything You Can Buy in a Store
One thing debt and clutter have in common is that as soon as you start letting it pile up, it can be harder and harder to see your way around it.

Zadie Smith
“Every moment happens twice: inside and outside, and they are two different histories.”
Zadie Smith, White Teeth

Thomas Aquinas
“I would rather feel compassion than know the meaning of it. I would hope to act with compassion without thinking of personal gain.”
Thomas Aquinas

Bill Buford
“In normal life, "simplicity" is synonymous with "easy to do," but when a chef uses the word, it means "takes a lifetime to learn.”
Bill Buford, Heat: An Amateur's Adventures as Kitchen Slave, Line Cook, Pasta-Maker, and Apprentice to a Dante-Quoting Butcher in Tuscany

Matthew B. Crawford
“The satisfactions of manifesting oneself concretely in the world through manual competence have been known to make a man quiet and easy. They seem to relieve him of the felt need to offer chattering interpretations of himself to vindicate his worth. He can simply point: the building stands, the car now runs, the lights are on. Boasting is what a boy does, because he has no real effect in the world. But the tradesman must reckon with the infallible judgment of reality, where one’s failures or shortcomings cannot be interpreted away. His well-founded pride is far from the gratuitous “self-esteem” that educators would impart to students, as though by magic.”
Matthew B. Crawford, Shop Class as Soulcraft: An Inquiry Into the Value of Work

Austin Kleon
“The best advice is not to write what you know, it’s to write what you like. Write the kind of story you like best—write the story you want to read. The same principle applies to your life and your career:”
Austin Kleon, Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative
