CSS was first introduced as a way to reduce the complexity of using inline styles and to help separate concerns. After years of ballooning stylesheets with the same values being used over and over and losing sync, CSS preprocessors introduced variables to help keep values defined in a single place.

Commencement Address, American University in Beirut, 2016 — Medium
"For I have a single definition of success: you look in the mirror every evening, and wonder if you disappoint the person you were at 18, right before the age when people start getting corrupted by life. Let him or her be the only judge; not your reputation, not your wealth, not your standing in the community, not the decorations on your lapel. If you do not feel ashamed, you are successful. All other definitions of success are modern constructions; fragile modern constructions."
