National Simplicity Day honors famous American transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau and advocates examining and simplifying one's life.

Henry David Thoreau (July 12, 1817 – May 6, 1862) was an author, naturalist, philosopher, and historian. He was also a tax resister, abolitionist, development critic, and surveyor. His book, Walden, is a reflection upon simple living in harmony with nature. 

Here are some thought-provoking quotes on simplicity: 

“In proportion as he simplifies his life, the laws of the universe will appear less complex, and solitude will not be solitude, nor poverty poverty, nor weakness weakness.”

Henry David Thoreau 


“My riches consist not in the extent of my possessions but in the fewness of my wants.”    

J. Botherton

“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.” 


Robert Brault

Just for today, seek a leisurely pace that doesn’t include the accumulation of things. 

Who enjoys seeing a smile, tasting a cool drink of ice water, smelling a sweet flower, feeling a soft pat from a pet or hearing a word of encouragement? All of these "simple things" are both precious and free.

On Simplicity Day, take a moment to be thanful for the gift of life and breath, and all of the simple gifts that bring joy and pleasure to one's day.
