Grow daily in simplicity.

Cultivate the graces of goodness and gentleness. Simplicity is the best and truest kind of greatness. The simple life is strong, useful, and productive. It combines confidence with lofty purpose. Nature is simple in all her ways. The greatest things in life; beauty, love, truth, nobility, and righteousness – are simple in character.

Begin each day with a sincere desire to be strong and simple. Make simplicity the keynote of your aims and achievements. Beware pride, selfishness, and inordinate ambition. Liberality and serenity of mind come largely from a sincere desire to be simple. As you grow in simplicity, your life will become full and beautiful, and you will be a constant inspiration to your fellow men.
