    I think to 'lower ones standards' is to compromise ones ideals, principles, and beliefs. It's more of a mental conciliation.

    In contrast, the ability to enjoy 'simple pleasures' needs no compromise, only an awareness and an ability to appreciate everyday, pure, humble, and natural beauty in things and times.

    Lower standard means to hurt some ones feelings.

    Simple pleasure means to enjoy the moments with cheer full mood.

    Simple pleasures are what I enjoy.

    Lowering my standards is what I'm trying to avoid...

    Lower standards are something we should avoid at all costs.

    Simple pleasures are something we should enjoy at all times.

    the difference is the person and with appreciating simple pleasures like good weather,beautiful flowers, friends, pets, having a sense of humor or intelligence....

    kind of like a big difference in how someone lives...say someone doesn't have much money....might not buy expensive things or live in a big house, but still can be generous to people not cheap.

    Like cheap people will not even help their friends when they can, they only will spend money or do things for themselves.

    ...some may "settle" for lower standards or inferior products, ways, etc for different reasons...but simple pleasures are often rich in their own way offering true appreciation and value

    lower standards usually involve boning the girl next door.

    simple pleasure is fantasizing that you are.

    I've had to learn that one for myself in the last year. I was acustomed to living in a lower standard because that's what I felt I was worth. Now, I can see I was wrong.

    lower standards give you an "itch"

    simple pleasures give you memories
