The Beauty of Leaving Things Out

"The purest beauty in life is in the ellipsis...Intentional omission is the foundation of minimalism: we leave things out because they are unnecessary, and retain only what we need or use or love.  Omitting the unnecessary is a thing of pure beauty."

--Leo Babuta, mnmlist
