On simplicity

There are two ways of constructing software; one way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first method is far more difficult.
C. A. R. Hoare, inventor of the Quicksort algorithim

People often misinterpret complexity as sophistication
Niklaus Wirth, the father of Pascal
