Is there an idiom or proverb that implies simplicity is good? I was trying to find some idioms or proverbs that implied simplicity is good, and I was looking for some idioms or proverbs that implied that simplicity in general is good, and not simplicity in a particular case. I find it surprising that I ended up empty-ended after some research.
