Simplicity is the way home

The following quote is by William Rivers Pitt who was writing after the death of Eric Carle, author of the children’s book The Hungry Caterpillar:

Simplicity: whatever can be done within reach of your arm. Eric Carle took 224 words, 22 lines and his paintbrush, and made the world better.
Such a small thing, such an enormous thing, is within the grasp of each and every one of us.
Take pain and become joy, take suffering and become learning, take rage and become the kind of love that makes children smile, and if we all do it in our own little way, we all get to come home.
