"We will be candid in our reporting to you, emphasizing the pluses and minuses important in appraising business value. Our guideline is to tell you the business facts that we would want to know if our positions were reversed. We owe you no less.... We also believe candor benefits us as managers: the CEO who misleads others in public may eventually mislead himself in private." - Warren Buffett, 1983 

"Simplicity isn't just a visual style. It's not just minimalism or the absence of clutter. It involves digging through the depth of the complexity. To be truly simple, you have to go really deep." - Jonathan Ive, Apple
