[Quote No.26197] Need Area: Property > General
"A Zen Master, understanding the true joys of life, lived a simple, natural life in a little hut at the foot of a mountain. One evening, while he was away, a thief sneaked into the hut only to find there was nothing in it to steal. The Zen Master returned and found him. ‘You have come a long way to visit me’, he told the prowler, ‘and you should not return empty handed. Please take my clothes as a gift.’ The thief was bewildered, but he took the clothes and ran away. The Master sat naked, watching the moon. ‘Poor fellow,’ he mused, ‘I wish I could give him this beautiful moon.’" - Unknown

[Quote No.31958] Need Area: Property > General
"The Simplicity Imperative: Much of what you read... [think and do may be] directed at helping you earn more money and achieve financial independence. But what many people mistake for wealth is pure junk: the oversized plasma TV, the 2010 Ferrari, the custom-built estate home. In fact, a big part of living rich is getting rid of most of that stuff. The truly rich don't clutter their lives with overpriced baubles. They prefer to lead their lives with fewer but more valuable things. They spend their days doing what pleases them and shunning what doesn't. That's what we all want, isn't it? Yet how few of us succeed! Still, it's perfectly possible for people on an ordinary income to live as the really rich (balance-sheet rich rather than income-statement rich) do... You can make a great start by following what I call the 'simplicity imperative.' By that I mean getting rid of the junk experiences and possessions that crowd your life and give you stress and replacing them with quality experiences and possessions that bring you enduring pleasure. Let me give you a few examples: -Trade in that oversized house you can't afford. Move into something modest that you can gradually fix up and fill with furniture and art that mean something to you. Make it your own little paradise. Make it the kind of house that will make friends feel welcome and comfortable. -Instead of buying the hottest, most expensive new car on the market, buy a slightly used high-quality car that you can enjoy driving for 10 years or more. -Give away two-thirds of your clothes and wear only those that make you feel great. You know which ones they are already. Do it and see how quickly you feel richer. And that is just the beginning. You can apply this simplification strategy to your work, and even your relationships. Simplifying your life is not an option if you want to live rich. It is an absolute necessity. Having two beautifully tailored suits or dresses that fit you perfectly makes you feel infinitely classier than having two dozen that will look dated in a matter of months. Having one small home that is well maintained and contains a treasure trove of little artifacts that say something good about you - your character, your values, your interests - is a hundred times more impressive than living in a 10,000-square-foot McMansion that somebody else decorated for you. And when it comes to how you spend your time, clearing out the junk activities will make you richer too. Turn off the TV, the computer, and the video games and you'll turn on your spirit to a world full of gratifying experiences. Less in your life will give you more. More productivity. More passion. More meaning, love, friendship, serenity, etc. This isn't a new idea - but though most of us acknowledge that it's true, we need to be reminded of it from time to time." - Michael Masterson

[Quote No.32106] Need Area: Property > General
"The desire for food is limited in every man by the narrow capacity of the human stomach; but the desire of the conveniences and ornaments of building, dress, equipage, and household furniture, seems to have no limit or certain boundary. [except that dictated by personal desire, self-discipline and finances. Contrary to advertising more or better possessions do not increase happiness after the basic needs are met sufficiently. As Harvard psychologist Daniel Gilbert writes in 'Stumbling On Happiness': 'Economists and psychologists have spent decades studying the relation between wealth and happiness, and they have generally concluded that wealth increases human happiness when it lifts people out of abject poverty and into the middle class but that it does little to increase happiness thereafter. Americans who earn $50,000 per year are much happier than those who earn $10,000 per year, but Americans who earn $5 million per year are not much happier than those who earn $100,000 per year. People who live in poor nations are much less happy than people who live in moderately wealthy nations, but people who live in moderately wealthy nations are not much less happy than people who live in extremely wealthy nations. Economists explain that wealth has 'declining marginal utility,' which is a fancy way of saying that it hurts to be hungry, cold, sick, tired, and scared, but once you've bought your way out of these burdens, the rest of your money is an increasingly useless pile of paper (that demands time and effort to manage).']" - Adam Smith
Famous economist. Quoted from his book, 'The Wealth of Nations', published in 1776.

It is not the breaking of his doors, and the rummaging of his drawers, that constitutes the essence of the offense; but it is the invasion of his indefeasible right of personal security, personal liberty and private property, where that right has never been forfeited by his conviction of some public offense." - Justice Joseph P. Bradley
Boyd v. United States, 1886.
