One of My Favorite Anecdotes from Chesterton

Apropos of Maverick Philosopher's request for input the other day:

from St. Thomas Aquinas: "The Dumb Ox"
G. K. Chesterton

A lady I know picked up a book of selections from St. Thomas, with a commentary; and began hopefully to read a section with the innocent heading "The Simplicity of God." She then laid down the book with a sign and said, "Well, it that's His simplicity, I wonder what His complexity is like."

If you go and read Maverick Philosopher's article, you'll understand even better what she meant.  I'm always boggled by God's Simplicity.
