"Do not confuse ‘standard of living’ with ‘quality of life’: There comes a point when pursuing a higher ‘standard of living,’ in terms of material wealth, adds absolutely nothing to quality of life, in terms of overall well-being. Pursuing material wealth can even detract from quality of life if we aren't careful. If you focus on quality of life you will discover it doesn't depend on being materially wealthy. So step out of the rat race. Seek true abundance – sustainable abundance – in the simpler way. ‘There is no wealth but life.’
Be grateful for what we have. Do not always demand more. Let us embrace sufficiency, moderation, and frugality. Less really can be more.."
