Daily Dose

From A Philosophy of Walking, by Frederic Gros


"Austerity is a refusal to let go, an interdiction on feeling too much for fear of being carried away.  Frugality, in contrast, is the discovery that simplicity is fulfilling, the discovery of perfect enjoyment with little or nothing: water, a fruit, the breathing of the wind."

From Chapter Two, Conquest of the Wilderness -- Thoreau
