Mood: Looking for Simplicity, Feat. Henri-Louis Bergson


L'homme devrait mettre autant d'ardeur à simplifier sa vie qu'il en met à la compliquer.
Henri-Louis Bergson [1859-1941]



This quote by French philosopher and essayist Henri-Louis Bergson says "People should put as much passion to simplify their life as they put to complicate it". 
It is a very interesting point of view and I know for sure that sometimes we feel so lost in our problems and in our thoughts, just like in this Black-and-White labyrinth, that we forget that for sure another way is possible too. Another solution. Another life.

To simplify is not that simple, of course, and takes time and practice.
But practice makes the master, after all.

Are you willing to semplifiy your life too?
How do you make your life more simple and easy-to-manage?

--

Questa citazione del filosofo e saggista francese Henri-Louis Bergson suona come "L'uomo dovrebbe tentare con altrettanto ardore di rendere la propria vita più semplice di quanto ne impieghi per renderla complicata". 
Si tratta di un punto di vista molto interessante e so per certo che a volte siamo talmente persi nei nostri problemi e nei nostri pensieri, proprio come in questo labirinto in bianco e nero, che ci dimentichiamo che c'è sicuramente un'altra via possibile. Un'altra soluzione. Un'altra vita.

Naturalmente non è così semplice rendere le cose semplici, e richiede tempo ed esercizio. 
Ma dopo tutto è l'esercizio che porta alla perfezione.

Desiderate anche voi semplificare la vostra vita?
Come rendete la vostra vita più semplice e facile da gestire?
