Martin Luther already said in his 'table speeches': "One does not like to borrow through thick bret". And with Lessing the whole thing sounds like a recommendation: "... it is undisputed that there are still excellent pieces do; and the proverb says, drill the board where it is thinnest. "The contemptuous term" thin board drill "was derived from the expression in the schoolchildren's language.

only"The red-green labor market policy is quite simply and completely unsuccessful"; "I am simply claiming that 90% of all overweight people get their fat on their ribs by eating affluence"; "I have to admit that we were sometimes simply overwhelmed with this task"This idiom has in the course of time - especially with regard to the second word "poignant" - experienced a change in meaning. At first it was not a fixed combination of words, but was used in a literal, non-idiomatic sense - especially when describing art and literature, which is simple and yet poignant. In what is probably the oldest document from 1841, Johann Peter Lange writes about the writer Bettina von Arnim: "This is how she got the mother of Göthes and Beethoven, like the Rheingau, like the Tyrolean struggle for freedom, with the sharp lines of genius, drawn with the true colors of loving enthusiasm ". Here "moving" is used in the sense of "touching, moving the heart". The word combination has been used in an ironic and joking way since the 1960s, but nothing of that can be felt today. And so the expression has solidified into a fixed formula that only "simply, easy"means and in which the" moving "barely bears any meaning.
