Sorry, but there was a bait I couldn't resist here. :-)

In fact not, simple things can be terribly difficult to achieve (complexity vs 
difficulty spectrums). I think the proposed phrasing points it out well:
 * simple vs complex;
 * easy vs possible.

That being said, I wonder how many people will fall for it like you did here. 
Most people tend to conflate simple with easy and complex with difficult.
