The more pleasures of this world one takes for himself, the less he appreciates pleasure.

This can be seen in the statement of our sages in regards to the Divine Laws:

"איזהו עשיר? השמח בחלקו".

'Wealth' can be understood as a term here denoting the zenith of physical pleasure. Who can experience such pleasure? Only one who appreciates the pleasures he has available to him. How can that be done? As was stated- by minimalism.
