Simplicity #AtoZChallenge

In this world that's after hi-fi status, brand & personality,
What are the survival prospects of plain simplicity?

Being simple & adhering to simplicity can backfire?
Is being simple silly & not seen as an object of desire?

Simplicity means lacking class & being backward?
Or is Simplicity a class apart to propel forward?

In this world that's showy, fake & materialistic,
Should we at all choose Simplicity as our pick?

Da Vinci felt "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication"
In Simplicity is there any use, beauty & inspiration?

"Simple living, high thinking" - Do you follow?
Is Simplicity a great treasured asset for you?

  1. I like what DaVinci said about simplicity being the ultimate sophistication. There's something elegant about a uncluttered room, a single flower in a vase, etc.

  2. Simplicity is the best policy as actions can emanate from there faster and better (agreed with Job's 'it can move mountains')

  6. Appreciating Simplicity is nowadays seen as not having class or being stupid. But it's only simplicity that can bring peace and calm in life

  10. “Childhood means simplicity. Look at the world with the child’s eye – it is very beautiful.” – Kailash Satyarthi

    “Life is really simple, but we insist on complicating it.” – Confucius

    I crave simple or perhaps simpler on a number of levels. One of my favourite ways to achieve a bit of simplicity occurs when we go camping because we have no electronic beyond a movie if it rains, and that includes no turned on cell phones, there are no chores, no media or social media sites hammering at the senses, and excterea. It is family time and it is outdoors time set against the backdrop of nature sounds and smoke from a campfire. Great post, thanks for sharing.

  11. I think we all need to come back to a more simplistic approach to life - we complicate and overthink everything and that is when we start making mistakes and worrying about stuff that might not even happen.

  13. Simplicity is the key to meaningful life. We are complicating our lives unnecessarily as human kind. I am trying to simplify and declutter things in life - not just the home but in thoughts too.

  18. Henry David Thoreau said "Simplify, simplify, simplify" ... and someone said if he really meant it there would have been only one simplify! Nonetheless, in my book simplicity IS class. Loved the poem!

  19. Simplicity slows things down and makes life more peaceful. A cool topic.

  20. Simple is a complex stay of being. And too many out there--who believe themselves too grand--can never grasp the depths of a simple lifestyle. Too bad... for them and their dreams.

  24. Simplicity seems easier said than done. I do like Thoreau too, but I recently found out that his mom did his laundry every week! So he was simplifying his life in his cabin, but he was outsourcing some of his chores! LOL! Maui Jungalow

  25. I live simply for the most part. Names alone mean hardly anything to me. That said, I do enjoy simple luxuries like thick, soft cotton towels, leather seats, etc.

  26. It is easy to talk about Simplicity but hard to attain. Simplicity could be understood in words of Kabir as "ज्यों की त्यों धर दीन चदरिया"
