“Perfection is Achieved Not When There Is Nothing More to Add, But When There Is Nothing Left to Take Away”

Posted by Daniel Lignini,

French writer Antoine de Saint-Exupery is a great reminder that often, less is more. Whether you’re a designer, writer, or anything else, many of us tend toward too much detail when we should be erring on the side of simplicity. The more cruft you can cut, the more efficient you can be in conveying your message.

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, (29 June 1900 – 31 July 1944, Mort pour la France), was a French aristocrat, writer, poet, and pioneering aviator. He became a laureate of several of France’s highest literary awards and also won the U.S. National Book Award. He is best remembered for his novella The Little Prince (Le Petit Prince) and for his lyrical aviation writings, including Wind, Sand and Stars and Night Flight.
