Just found a file with some quotes about simplicity I noted some time ago. I thought it’d be nice to save them here!

The first one comes from a well-known writer:

“Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.” - Antoine de Saint-ExupΓ©ry

And now from a painter:

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” - Leonardo da Vinci

Finally, but not least, from the Agile Manifesto:

“Simplicity - the art of maximizing the amount of work not done - is essential.” - Agile Manifesto
