I thought design is the elimination of the unnecessary?

Art will remain the most astonishing activity of mankind born out of struggle between wisdom and madness, between dream and reality in our mind. ~ Magdalena Abakanowicz

Art demands constant observation. ~Vincent Van Gogh

Good artists copy, great artists steal. ~ Picasso via Steve Jobs

Il semble que la perfection soit atteinte non quand il n'y a plus rien à ajouter, mais quand il n'y a plus rien à retrancher.

It seems that perfection is attained not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing more to remove.

Antoine St-Exupery

I wonder if Einstein had heard that when he said

"Everything should be as simple as possible, but no simpler."

as simple as possible but no simpler

It seems, although St-Exupery was born a few decades later, as Einstein passed away more than a decade after he did, that they, indeed, were contemporaries.

Their quotes are mirrors of each other.

Simple is hard. It's like packing for a trip; you want to add extra ... just in case. :)

The key is to live without the "just in case" and be able to improvise...
