Weekend quote: Pinkas Hashetah Shel AKBAN

1st quote

Simplicity: a clear line separates simplicity from asceticism. Asceticism is alien to the outside and so is un-necessary, it gets in the way.

Asceticism comes from somewhere else and is fueled by strange emotions. It does not react to what is happening outside but is activated from the inner scape. The minimalism that is the heart of our outside style is not ascetic but enjoys it’s assets. So the sparseness of the things we have stems from efficiency, burden reduction and lightness of movement. Things that are simple and multi-useful are to be preferred.

Simplicity is not an ethical thing, the simplicity of our equipment begets pragmatism and speed of movement.
