A Calm and Humble Life

We’ve started (or tried to start) a congregational conversation about frugality and contentment. In that vein, I have a quote from Albert Einstein. Einstein was not a Christian, but this sentiment of his sure is.

“A calm and humble life will bring more happiness than the pursuit of success and the constant restlessness that comes with it.” [1]

This quote from a handwritten note that sold at auction for $1.56m which seems to me to indicate that the person who bought it had not yet taken it to heart.
