He Said That? 1/31/17

From Antoine de Saint Exupéry (1900-1944), French writer, poet and aviator, Wind, Sand, and Stars (1939):

It seems that perfection is attained not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing more to remove.

This is the implicit philosophy of all great sculptors and editors. Alas, pure perfection, at least in writing, always seems a bit out of reach.

  1. This might be an OK example of the above “He Said That?” from the Scott Adams post:
    “The smartest person I know told me that the secret to business success does NOT necessarily involve hiring the right people. We just think it does. The real secret to success is firing the people that you discover to be the wrong fit until eventually you END UP with the right people.”
