any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. it takes a touch of genius – and a lot of courage – to move in the opposite direction. – e.f. schumacher
I know how to simplify. I must be a genius!
Anyone can make things bigger, more complex or violent. They don’t have to be foolish or intelligent.
A genius is not necessarily courageous.
Anyone can simplify their life if they make the effort…
sweet love this quote :)

i, as well, see that it is often attributed to albert einstein. perhaps the person who i read that attributed it to schumacher was mistaken:
Dan Read says
This quote is listed as one that is often attributed to Einstein but which he didn’t actually say, so it was probably Schumacher who actually said it.
Chris Cuilla says
I had always heard that quote attributed to Albert Einstein.
