Favorite Quote from Richard Foster

Freedom of SimplicityI love this quote from Richard Foster’s Freedom of Simplicity book.  I’ve read it so many times to my family, I think my boys have it memorized.  This quote also makes me feel good about my hatred of shopping for clothes for myself and feel okay about not having new and fashionable clothes.

“Consider your clothes.  Most people have no need for more clothes.  They buy more not because they need clothes, but because they want to keep up with the fashions.  Hang the fashions.  Buy only what you need.  Stop trying to impress people with your clothes and impress them with your life.”
