Living a simple life by Saint Ambrose of Optina

Living a simple life is the best, don't think too hard about anything. Pray to God. The Lord will arrange everything. Don't torture yourself thinking about what to do and how to cope. Let it be as it happens - this is what living a simple life is about... Where there is simplicity, there are a hundred angels, but where there is cleverness, there are none.

Saint Ambrose of Optina
