Quotes That Make You Go Hmmm…

“Live Simply
So That Others
May Simply Live”

I love this quote for a number of reasons.

I first saw it the other day when I was driving around town, spray painted in black on a white background – striking, simple and poignant.

The object that had been painted white?  A street-side concrete garbage container.

The garbage container was located outside a high school.

Youth activism in today’s text message world.   Perfect.

Who is the author of this quote?

A quick Google search attributed it to both Mother Teresa and Gandhi.

I didn’t feel the need to search further, to suss-out just who was the definitive author. Either is fine by me.

Striking, simple, poignant.

What was your reaction when you first read this quote?
