“I would suggest not to compromise. I will vividly remember that moment on Bleecker street and 6th avenue in 1983, when i chose to compromise, because I was afraid.”
— a very good talk by debbie millman.

“It’s more like a sort of dichotomy kind of thing," he continued. "It’s like the thing behind ‘Perfect Day’ by Lou Reed. The lyrics are beautiful and they’re really, really happy, but the music is really, really sad. It’s that kind of thing, where you can create [differing] moods through the music and lyrics.”

“What people who don’t write don’t understand is that they think you make up the line consciously — but you don’t. It proceeds from your unconscious. So it’s the same surprise to you when it emerges as it is to the audience when the comic says it. I don’t think of the joke and then say it. I say it and then realize what I’ve said. And I laugh at it, because I’m hearing it for the first time myself.”

Love this feature on WSJ, called “My Favorite Things.” (Picture above is from Alexander Wang’s).
As Paola Antonelli once said, “The bond between people and things has always been filled with powerful and unspoken sentiments going well beyond functional expectations and including attachment, love, possessiveness, jealousy, pride, curiosity, anger, even friendship and partnership.”

What you teach is what you are. You don’t teach by telling people things.
I believe that you convey your ideas by the authenticity of your being. Not by glibly telling someone what to do or how to do it. I believe that this is why so much teaching is ineffective. … Good teaching is merely having an encounter with someone who has an idea of what life is that you admire and want to emulate.
