Simplicity of Heart

Came across some awesome quotes recently, and thought of sharing them…

“Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that's creativity” (Charles Mingus)

“Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius—and a lot of courage—to move in the opposite direction.” (E. F. Schumacker)

“Never again will I make the simple into the complex. Something of true value does not become more valuable because it becomes complicated. Experience and conditions come and go; complications arise and fall away, but the simple action of God is eternal in the universe.” (Donald Curtis)


I think simplicity has been much-maligned. Simple isn’t stupid. Simple isn’t to-be-taken-advantage-of. Simple isn’t about education (or the lack thereof).In our very complicated world, we need to keep our simplicity. Simplicity of thoughts. Simplicity of words. Simplicity of hearts. Simplicity of motives. :)
