The Golden Rule of a Minimalist Homestead

“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.”

Wise words from William Morris.

“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.”

— William Morris

I have come across these words many times in my long quest for a decent life.  Sometimes when you read something it just rings true.  William Morris really strikes a chord deep down in my heart.  He was a true genius and polymath and his contributions are often forgotten in our modern world.  I think this will be my mantra, and painted over my door.
