I’m sure I have heard a quote in the past from someone famous (maybe Einstein? maybe not) about how it is easy to make something complicated but extremely difficult to make something simple.
Is there a well-known quote about this?

“Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex… It takes a touch of genius — and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.” http://www.alberteinsteinsite.com/quotes/einsteinquotes.html
