Less Is More


Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away....
Antoine de St. Exupery, Wind, Sand and Stars, 1939
Might be old news, but I'd not heard it before. Nice, eh? It could sum up the philosophy of so much that's cool about biking - be it dirt trackers, speedway bikes, bobbers, chops... Mick Phillips

The expression "Less is more" is actually from a poem from 1855 by Robert Browning. And quite pretty it is too.

It was only later that Mies, Gropius, Fuller and the other modernists started using the phrase.
