Being Simply Beautiful


A lovely video interview with South African Theo du Plessis, by Green Renaissance filmmakers, via – from the transcript:

  • "Minimalism is is just a long word for nothing."
  • "I believe in a force called Goodness. I believe in an energy called Love."
  • "We don't realize how many good people there are in the world. Most people keep their help silent. It doesn't mean it's not there."
  • "The force of Good, of Light, is much stronger than the force of Darkness."
  • "Dr Seuss said, 'Always say what you mean, and mean what you say, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter won't mind!' ..."
  • "The most important question I ask myself, ... over and over every day: Is it real? Is it real?"
  • "I think it was Mother Teresa's business card that said, 'The fruit of Love is Hope. The fruit of Hope is Service. The fruit of Service is Love.' It's a cycle. One leads to the other. So my advice ... is to jump in anywhere."

... and comments about possessions and animals and poverty and choice and goodness ...
