Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
We might agree or disagree with this view, but this depends on how we understand it.
I read this quote on a photo of two old neighbours, talking together, in a place that looks like an old rural lane. I wondered how can simplicity be the ultimate sophistication, but the photo explains a lot because not all people can appreciate such a simple life.
Simplicity is not a simple process; it’s sophisticated. To sit on the road to talk with a neighbour and feel such peace, just like the two women in the photo, requires a simple way of being.
Simplicity is one of the writing techniques or a recommended one, but a simple piece can also be the most sophisticated.
Wishing you all the best,
