"Straight-line logic and Western materialism tell us that having more is the right path to success. Goldian Vandenbroeck's collection takes us into the company of men and women who discovered the elusive path to satisfaction through simplicity." (Rik Roberts, New Age Retailer)
About the Author
Born in Germany, Dr. E. F. Schumacher (1911 1977) fled to England after the rise of Nazism and, with the help of John Maynard Keynes, taught economics at Oxford University. He is the author of Small Is Beautiful, the book that "changed the way many people think about bigness and its human cost" (New York Times).

The quotes are grouped according to the various facets of this subject, although some of them are more obviously related to living simply than others. Most of the quotes range from a few sentences to a paragraph or two. The excerpt from the first chapter is not representative of the overall book. I have owned an earlier edition of this book for many years and continue to find it inspiring. I only wish that there were a hardcover edition available as my paperback copy is becoming rather worn from being read and re-read by myself and the people I have lent it to.
