Quote - Walt Whitman

From the current read:

"The art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters is simplicity. Nothing is better than simplicity . . . nothing can make up for excess or for the lack of definiteness."
- Walt Whitman

A literary version of Occam's Razor, which says the simplest solution is the best one.

Dagny - A very astute comparison. And since Occam's razor has a simpler definition, then it is the better of the two, no? :)
