古希腊的“极简主义”精神

"Things," chairs and tables, books and houses and carriages, are apt to take up a great deal of their owner's time. In the end, they invariably make him their slave and his hours are spent looking after their wants, keeping them polished and brushed and painted. The Greeks, before everything else, wanted to be "free", both in mind and in body. That they might maintain their liberty and be truely free in spirit, they reduced their daily needs to the lowest possible point.

古希腊人认为“身外之物”会过多占据他们的时间,并令人最终成为身外之物的奴隶。他们追求一种身体和精神上的绝对自由,将每日的必须用品减少到了最低。嗯,因为他们有奴隶帮忙干活,自己只用投投票看看戏就好了。

从Chapter 13开始描写古希腊人的生活,没想到极简主义提倡的moderation和simplicity出现得这么早啊。
