    If you don't know what "vehement" means, this quote is not simple to understand.

    I think that the language in this quote in itself shows that what is simplicity to some - might seem complex to others, who aren't as knowledgeable.

    @jiraTicket Yup, often called "the curse of knowledge". It's hard to "forget" about something once you know it and put yourself in the shoes of someone "ignorant". Hence the trouble of explaining a complex topic with simple words.
