Din dicționarul Jargon File (4.3.1, 29 Jun 2001) :

  elegant adj. [common; from mathematical usage] Combining simplicity,
     power, and a certain ineffable grace of design. Higher praise than
     `clever', `winning', or even cuspy.
  
     The French aviator, adventurer, and author Antoine de Saint-Exupe'ry,
     probably best known for his classic children's book "The Little Prince",
     was also an aircraft designer. He gave us perhaps the best definition of
     engineering elegance when he said "A designer knows he has achieved
     perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is
     nothing left to take away."
