It's not the daily increase but daily decrease. Hack away at the unessential. - Bruce Lee

The older I grow up the more I find unnecessary clutter to confound me.

Acquisitiveness — the wish to possess as much as possible of goods, or the title to goods — is a motive which, I suppose, has its origin in a combination of fear with the desire for necessaries. I once befriended two little girls from Estonia, who had narrowly escaped death from starvation in a famine. They lived in my family, and of course had plenty to eat. But they spent all their leisure visiting neighbouring farms and stealing potatoes, which they hoarded. Rockefeller, who in his infancy had experienced great poverty, spent his adult life in a similar manner. […] However much you may acquire, you will always wish to acquire more; satiety is a dream which will always elude you. - Bertrand Russell
