Mantras:

Don’t organize; eliminate.

Clutter smothers; simplicity breathes.

Just in case = never.

It’s not a good deal if you don’t need it.

Strive not to get more done, but to have less to do.

Minimalism is believing there is such a thing as enough.

Work to become not to acquire.

I make myself rich by making my wants few.
