Tis a Gift to be Simple

Bishop Fenelon

“In the world, when people call anyone simple, they generally mean a foolish, ignorant, credulous person. But real Simplicity, far from being foolish, is almost sublime. All good men like and admire it, are conscious of failing to reach it, observe it in others and know what it involves, and yet they could not precisely define it. I should say that simplicity is an up rightness of soul which prevents self-centeredness.”
