Simply Speaking

We talk about wanting things to be simple, we all seem to know what it’s not, but what is simple really?


sim·ple simpəl/ adjective

1. easily understood or done; presenting no difficulty.

“The pure and simple truth is rarely pure and never simple.”
― Oscar Wilde

Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.
― Confucius

We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.
― Mother Teresa

All that just to say, I’m having a busy day, so I’m keeping this post simple while I remember to post at all. Gotta go!

  1. Somehow it seems that when we find it simple to do something we think we have done something wrong because nothing should be that simple. Human nature? Have a simply great day!

  2. I like the word exploration…simple is one of those words that it’s nice to stop and think about.
    Let’s keep it simple! Wish more things were simple (maybe they actually are.)
    I like your quotations- great selection! I like that you did your slice today too. I think that is important!

  3. I like your quotes! At my home tonight things seem very complicated. Reading these quotes and your thoughts made me feel better. It also made me think of the acronym KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid)! I think simplicity goes along with gratitude. When things start to get too complicated, maybe we are reaching beyond what we really need and delving into more of the ‘want’ area. I have to remind myself this very often.

So? What do you think?
