Fenelon, Francois - The Fool
Type of spiritual experience
A description of the experience
In the world, when people call anyone simple, they generally mean a foolish, ignorant, credulous person. But real simplicity, so far from being foolish is almost sublime.
All men like and admire it, are conscious of sinning against it, observe it in others and know what it involves, and yet they cannot precisely define it.
I should say simplicity is an uprightness of soul which prevents self consciousness.
