Friday Wisdom – Simple

Nothing is as complex as simplicity.

Mini sermon:  In a car you press the brake pedal to stop.  Simple.  But that simplicity is composed of hundreds of mechanical parts that took 100 years of engineering perfect and requires skilled technicians to maintain.  “I love you,” a simple phrase that both enriches and complicates life.  Never underestimate the complexity of simplicity.

    • Interesting point. When I did my driver’s training way back in the last century, we had to answer questions on how to stop a car without brakes, but didn’t have to demonstrate.

  6. Profoundly true, profoundly defined.
    Another truth is how difficult it is to simplify your life. So difficult, most people give up before they even start.

  9. Well isn’t that wise. I find myself agreeing. There’s nothing simple about love. I’m still figuring it out after 105 years.
