In the pursuit of elegance Mathew May has said, “how elegant if we can improve our thought process by learning how to stop thinking.” Elegance is acquired by leaving out the right things. Humans are natural born adders, that is why elegance being subtractive is elusive. Our addiction to addition results in overload or waste. From the “Little Prince”, “Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.”
Michelangelo said, “I saw David through the stone and I simply chipped away everything that was not David.”
Jean Monnet, the Creator of the European Common Market said, “Nothing is ever completed. Incompleteness is a part of nature and it needs great wisdom to know when to lay down the brush. We should always avoid perfectionism.
