To add to that point...

I'm a beginner to Rust and this was my exact reaction (Too much complex syntax!!), but one conclusion I have come to since, is that one of the really nice thing languages like Python do, is that they just don't deal with a whole bunch of CS issues (eg: everything is a reference to an object) or are very opinionated about it (ownership/lifetime is bound to scope, no way to extend/change it). By doing this, not only are the language simpler, but they also just need less symbols.
