    If you have less of something then there's more of it left. I think less usually balances out with more to make equal

    "Less is more", a phrase from the Robert Browning poem "Andrea del Sarto, also called 'The Faultless Painter'" published in 1855. Less is more (architecture), phrase adopted by 1947 by architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe as a precept for Minimalist design and architecture..." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Less_is_more

    The people who really most often claim "less is more" are those guys with, well, "less".

    Kind of like all those guys with "less" who drive huge pickup trucks. I guess in that way, "less is more", but it really boils down to "more is less" in that case.

    I was trying to think of an efficient way to say this with fewer words but I just don't have it in me. Sorry.

    Yes.

    In music it often is. The silences and spaces between sounds are just as important as the sounds themselves. Erik Satie and Harold Budd are a couple of pianists who exemplified the notion of 'less is more'.
