Simplicity

The most complicated skill 
Is to be simple.
To say more while saying less Is the secret of being simple.
To not say all that can be said Is the secret of discipline and economy.
To leave out beautiful sunsets Is the secret of good taste.
To hide feelings when you are near crying Is the secret of dignity.
To cut and tighten sentences Is the secret of mastery.
To keep the air fresh among words Is the secret of verbal cleanliness.
To write good poems Is the secret of brevity.
To go against the grain Is the secret of bravery.
To risk life to save a smile on a face of a woman or a child Is the secret of chivalry.
To go where no one else has ever gone before Is the secret of heroism.
To expect to be kissed having bad breath Is the secret of a fool.
Words rich in meaning Can be cheap in sound effects.
