People are so mixed up with everything going on that finding a simple person is next to impossible. This doesn't mean that they are not there. Of course, if you look hard enough, you will find them.

They are walking to the library in simple jeans and sneakers. They are moving away from the city life to live a simple life in a remote village in Greenland. Simple people still exist, but they are far spaced out nowadays.

Everybody is now an influencer with followers to market the latest make-up kit, iPhone, or perfume. People are choosing to follow the crowd because the crowd is cooler. No one wants to be seen as boring and not up to date.

But there are good things that come from the simple things. When the world didn't have social media, and things were simpler, it was quieter, people interacted more, and connections were stronger and more genuine.

Simple means more authenticity. When you are simple, you are able to be yourself more and see others as who they are. You can take a step back and see things more clearly. Whenever you want serenity in your life, try taking a simple approach to everything.

Our simple quotes show you that being simple doesn't have to be aloof. Simple can still be significant, meaningful, and cool. Here's to the simple things in life!

There is something beautiful about a blank canvas, the nothingness of the beginning that is so simple and breathtakingly pure. It’s the paint that changes its meaning and the hand that creates the story. Every piece begins the same, but in the end they are all uniquely different.

God's plan for enlarging His kingdom is so simple - one person telling another about the Savior. Yet we're busy and full of excuses. Just remember, someone's eternal destiny is at stake.

They opened the flower shop the next day. As Howl had pointed out, it could not have been simpler. Every early morning, all they had to do was to open the door with the knob purple-down and go out into the swimming green haze to gather flowers. It soon became a routine.

Michael took an invention of his own which he was very proud of. It was a large tin tub with water in it, which floated in the air and followed Michael wherever he went among the bushes. The dog-man went too. He had a wonderful time rushing about the wet green lanes, chasing butterflies or trying to catch the tiny, bright birds that fed on the flowers.

Depression tends to turn us away from the everyday things of God’s creation. But whenever God steps in, His inspiration is to do the most natural, simple things- things we would never have imagined God was in, but as we do them we find Him there.
