To live content with small means;
To seek elegance rather than luxury.
Seek refinement rather than fashion.
Be worthy, not respectable.
Be wealthy, not rich.
Listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with an open heart.
Bear all cheerfully.
Do all bravely.
In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious grow up through the common.
William Henry Channing was an American writer, clergyman and philosopher. He has a lot of writings but the piece above titled “my symphony” is well known. I hope it inspires you to live in contentment.
