“Grasping, hugging, striking, playing … are the fabric of being conscious. The work of the world is done by handling it. We live by feel.”

– Adam Gopnik

“Don’t design for everyone. It’s impossible. All you end up doing is designing something that makes everyone unhappy.”

— Leisa Reichelt

“Leave the door open for the unknown, the door into the dark. That’s where the most important things come from, where you yourself came from, and where you will go.”

– Rebecca Solnit
