El lujo no tiene nada que ver con la ostentación, el lujo es lo que necesitas para vivir cómodamente, a gusto y feliz, una buena chimenea, un rincón de lectura…La simplicidad es el lujo.
Tags: John donne, philosophy, Poem
No man is an island entire of itself; every man
is a piece of the continent, a part of the main;
if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe
is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as
well as any manner of thy friends or of thine
own were; any man’s death diminishes me,
because I am involved in mankind.
And therefore never send to know for whom
the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.
~ MEDITATION XVII
Devotions upon Emergent Occasions
All that thou seest will quickly perish, and those who have been spectators of its dissolution will very soon perish too. And he who dies at the extremest old age will be brought into the same condition with him who died prematurely.
~ Marcos Aurelius ~ Meditations
