The Swiss engineer reduces the number of supports just as the French writer compacts into a single line what lesser minds might have taken pages to express. We delight in complexity to which genius has lent an appearance of simplicity. (p 207)"

Free of hope and fear alike, the humble person remains lighthearted."
- Matthieu Ricard, The Art of Happiness: A Guide to Developing Life's Most Important Skill
