Design is not making beauty, beauty emerges from selection, affinities, integration, love.
Louis Kahn

Recognizing the need is the primary condition for design.
Charles Eames

The proper study of mankind is the science of design.
Herbert Simon

Talent hits a target no one else can hit; Genius hits a target no one else can see.
Arthur Schopenhauer

If you think it’s expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.
