The simplest solutions are often the cleverest. They are also usually wrong.

  1. While a simple solution might be wrong in a lot of cases. An elegant solution is often simple – in implementation and use, if not design.

  2. My personal favourite restatement of this universal truth is:

    Complex problems have simple, easy to understand, wrong answers.

  3. You are both right of course. I’ve not been able to track down who said “I am sorry to write such a long letter, I didn’t have the time to write a short one” and the same is true when “simple” means “elegant”.
