Dit zijn de 20 mooiste quotes van Leo Babauta

In de Bedrock-serie ‘de mooiste quotes van’ delen we regelmatig inspirerende citaten van wijze mensen. Eerder kwamen Mathma Gandhi, Alain de Botton en Jezus al aan bod, dit keer is het tijd voor Leo Babauta. Je kent hem misschien van zijn wereldbekende, inspirerende blog Zen Habits over het implementeren van zengewoonten in je leven. 

Leo Babauta is naast schrijver, zenleerling (zo noemt hij zichzelf), ook veganist én minimalist. Oh, en hij heeft zichzelf geschoold. Hij schreef boeken als Zen to Done, The Power of Less, 52 Changes en The simple guide to a minimalist life.

Iemand waar we veel van kunnen leren dus!
