We have this quote on a large magnet on our fridge.  Thankfully we have 
both, so we remind ourselves that our needs are met.  I think a modern 
version of the quote should read "If you have a garden, a library and 
access to a Goodwill and a home supply store, you will have everything 
you need."   [Perhaps as much as 75% of our clothes come from Goodwill, 
a never ending supply of recycled clothing.  If you live in or near a 
university town, the selection is even better.]

The other quotation magnet on our fridge:  "He who follows his own path 
needs no map." -- Queen Christina of Sweden (1632-1654), 1626-1689.
