I've been thinking about idioms, metaphors, and phrases one could use in a conversation to convey the idea that simpler is better. I came up with a few:
"Don't scratch your left ear with your right hand."
"The shortest distance between two points is a straight line."
Are you aware of any others? I'm looking for something shorter, but I'll take anything.
Addendum: I'm also interested in acronyms and complete sentences. I don't want to restrict the kinds of answers you might provide, as long as they convey the idea that simpler is better.
Addendum re potential duplicate: Is there another way of saying "less is more"? This question concerns alternative ways to characterize a minimalist approach, one striving for extreme spareness and simplicity. My question is not a duplicate. I am seeking alternatives for simpler is better, not ways to describe extreme sparseness and simplicity. Also, the contrast inherent in simpler is better, which is essential to my question, is absent in the less-is-more question.
Addendum re potential duplicate: Is there a funny expression for "Keep it simple"? This question concerns funny alternatives for a native expression that usually encourages someone to use a solution that has already been found, or to refrain from making some trivial process overly complicated. I'm not seeking ways to encourage the use of solutions that have already been found or to discourage the making of trivial processes overly complicated. I'm also not seeking funny expressions per se, as evidenced by my two examples, which few would find funny. The scope of my question is much broader.
