Voluntary Simplicity, Second Edition is written by Duane Elgin. I only finished half the book before this one was due back at the library. I couldn't renew it since it had another request on it, but I will get it again to finish it. It is excellent, again with much information on living a simple life. This book includes many quotes from people living a simple life.

Here is one of my favourite quotes from the book:

"Voluntary Simplicity is a way of living that is outwardly simple and inwardly rich....This way of life is not a static condition to be achieved, but an everchanging balance that must be continuously and consciously realized. Simplicity in this sense is not simple."
