Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication

"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication."
- Leonardo da Vinci

Simplicity does not come naturally. Those who wish to be thorough initially feel the need to include everything so that others will not miss anything.

A level of sophistication (scientists call it elegance) is reached where everything is implicit, nothing is missed by others, yet there is a beauty where each can take what he or she needs from a simple presentation.
