Been away for a couple of months as I felt that I needed a break. During this period I completed reading a book (fiction), titled; Conclave - authored by Robert Harris
There is a very interesting sentence in the book which got me thinking. Some people choose to lead a simplified life, and there is nothing wrong with it in itself. However, when it is "forced upon you" by the so called "recommendation" of the Org to be "no part of the world" and in effect denying yourself some of the many pleasures of life, then in my view it is an issue.
With the above in mind, I was wondering what your thoughts are on this sentence / quote in the book - page 25.
An excess of simplicity, after all, was just another form of ostentation, and pride in one's humility a sin.
