About Da Vinci Simplicity as Latest Sofistication

Simplicity is the Latest Sofistication

This is a passage in the Da Vinci Notebook that probably inspired that Quote:

“Though human ingenuity may make various inventions which, by the help of various machines answering the same end, it will never devise any inventions more beautiful, nor more simple, nor more to the purpose than Nature does; because in her inventions nothing is wanting, and nothing is superfluous, and she needs no counterpoise when she makes limbs proper for motion in the bodies of animals.”
