Not too easy

Easy is not particularly desirable. Easy rarely gives you anything of value.

Easy crowds out the best things in your life and replaces them with cheap, meaningless imitations. Easy robs you of your own sense of worth.

Sure, ease can be helpful, and certainly it can be enjoyable. But it’s never worthy of promotion to the prime consideration.

Easy is not worth the price when you have to give up meaning, integrity, value or dependability in order to get it. A life of ease is a life of little consequence, and no one really wants that.

Easy is enticing, and easy answers are the stock in trade of advertisers, politicians, and others who seek to exert influence. But easy never quite delivers on all the promises made on its behalf, and often makes matters worse.

Be careful not to fall into the tempting trap of expecting things to be too easy. You and those you care about deserve better.

— Ralph Marston
