Book cover for Simplicity Parenting: Using the Extraordinary Power of Less to Raise Calmer, Happier, and More Secure Kids
This sliding along the spectrum is really quite normal. Just as stress can push children in one direction, the reverse is also true. When you really simplify a child’s life on a number of levels, back they come.

“Ultimately, I think the #1 thing that draws me to someone is their sense of freedom. Freedom and confidence are two different things, in my book. Confidence is overrated — it can be faked, whereas freedom is fearlessness.”
Emily Weiss

Pico Iyer
“Anyone reading this book will take in as much information today as Shakespeare took in over a lifetime. Researchers in the new field of interruption science have found that it takes an average of twenty-five minutes to recover from a phone call. Yet such interruptions come every eleven minutes—which means we’re never caught up with our lives.”
Pico Iyer, The Art of Stillness: Adventures in Going Nowhere

Jasper Johns
“To be an artist you have to give up everything, including the desire to be a good artist.”
Jasper Johns

Sheryl Sandberg
“He explained that our amount of resilience isn’t fixed, so I should be asking instead how I could become resilient. Resilience is the strength and speed of our response to adversity—and we can build it. It isn’t about having a backbone. It’s about strengthening the muscles around our backbone.”
Sheryl Sandberg, Option B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience, and Finding Joy

Marilyn Monroe
“I'm not interested in money, I just want to be wonderful.”
Marilyn Monroe
