"Design is the method of putting form and content together. Design, just as art, has multiple defintions, there is no single definition. Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that’s why it is so complicated." —Paul Rand
"Works of imagination bleed together with the world they extrapolate from, the writing process begins with the writer, the life; it branches onto paper, into artifice; but the final restless resting place of every written thing is the solitary life of the reader; there it hibernates, a cluster of stray images, forgotten incitements and conversational asides, a mass of shadow wrapping itself around the thoughts and gestures of the self." —Sven Birkerts
