“The secret of happiness, you see, is not found in seeking more, but in developing the capacity to enjoy less.”----Socrates

I wonder what is the meaning of "in developing the capacity to enjoy less". I think it is to say one should be enjoyful even if you have nothing, the less the better. One friend said : enjoy less in a luxurious way. What's your opinion? 😀

I like both answers. I like the feeling of living on least necessities, then I can focus on the pure spiritul life, sharing pure joy.

Agree with you, dear Ivy. Have less, enjoy more. Even if we don't have much on material, we still need find happiness in our life. 😉

Thanks.

Yes, we all have the answer just that we need to make it clear to us from time to time, or we may forget that we are rich. 😆
