Freedom of Simplicity: Finding Harmony in a Complex World Reviews

  • AJ
    "A pivotal paradox for us to understand is that simplicity is both a grace and a discipline...There is no way that we can build up our willpower, put ourselves into this contortion or that, and attain it...It is a discipline because we are called to do something."
