: does anyone know the origin or full version of "simple thing please,simple minds;while bigger fools look on."any suggestions or full poem would be great.
I couldn't find the phrase in my quote books or online. The closest I came was a work of fiction online that had the phrase: Simple minds like simple things.
When I Googled "simple minds," those words came up several times but not in that exact expression. And the band Simple Minds came up.
