    What a great man, that Spurgeon.. I recently finished reading his biography :) (which took me a while since it was written in Spanish.. *lol*)

    Greetings from the netherlands!

    What a profound statement. I always liked Spurgeon’s writings. Making progress with my own “becoming minimalist” efforts since August 2009 when I discovered this blog. Thanks for the inspiration.

    In my experience, that applies to everything–money, achievements, stuff, etc. As a writer, my advice to aspiring authors is, if you can’t be happy unpublished, you won’t be happy published.
