Because here are some better ones to seek counsel from:


“Every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life are based on the labours of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving”

Albert Einstein

“Close your bodily eye, so that you may see your picture first with your spiritual eye, then bring to the light of day that which you have seen in the darkness so that it may react on others from the outside inwards.”

– Caspar David Friedrich

“Every tool carries with it the spirit by which it has been created.”

– Werner Karl Heisenberg

“The desire to consume is a kind of lust.

We long to have the world flow through us like air or food.  We are thirsty and hungry for something that can only be carried inside bodies.  

But consumer goals merely bait this lust, they do not satisfy it.  The consumer of commodities is invited to a meal without passion, a consumption that leads to neither satiation nor fire.  

He is a stranger seduced into feeding on the drippings of someone else’s capital without benefit of this inner nourishment, and he is hungry at the need of meal, depressed and weary as we all feel when lust has dragged us from the house led us to nothing.”

The Gift, Lewis Hyde

“Indifference towards people and the reality in which they live is actually the one and only cardinal sin in design.”

– Dieter Rams
