"Perfection is reached, not when there is no longer anything to add, but when there is no longer anything to take away."
- Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Interesting sort of reverse perspective
. Perhaps perfection is reached not when there is nothing more to add
(as is the suggested common notion) nor when there is nothing more to subtract
(as is the antithesis
of the common notion which Antoine argues in favor of) but when there is neither anything to take away or to add. It seems that perfection is not easily obtainable.
