Quote | Writing with Simplicity


But writing with simplicity requires courage, for there is danger that one will be overlooked, dismissed as simpleminded by those with a tenacious belief that impossible prose is a hallmark of intelligence. - Alain de Botton,  The Consultations of Philosophy 
Recently, I read this quote in Rosenthal's book, Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life and I understand why she liked it. The way she wrote and what she wrote about was interesting, uplifting, inspiring...and freeing.
