It’s what you don’t do

“All arts, big and small, are the elimination of wasted motion in favor of concise declaration. The artist learns what to leave out. The surgeon knows how to go directly to the source of trouble, how to avoid wasted time and complications. The athlete learns how to conserve power and apply it now here, now there, how to utilize this muscle, rather than that. Is the writer different? I think not.”
— Ray Bradbury
