Tags: Human, Problem  ✍ Author: Kim Campbell

While a case can be made for intelligent design, I can't figure out why some Christians are so thrilled about that possibility. First of all, it doesn't prove there's a God. If anything, intelligent design lends support to some form of pantheism that defines God as immanent within nature.

Tags: God, Nature  ✍ Author: Thomas Campion

Tags: Fashion, Matter  ✍ Author: Coco Chanel

Tags: Start, Successful  ✍ Author: John Davidson

The universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, nothing but blind, pitiless indifference.

Tags: Evil, Good  ✍ Author: Richard Dawkins

Design can never be an ultimate explanation for anything. It can only be a proximate explanation. A plane or a car is explained by a designer but that's because the designer himself, the engineer, is explained by natural selection.

Tags: Car, Himself  ✍ Author: Richard Dawkins

Designing is my hobby. If I didn't do what I do for a living - at some point when I don't do this for a living - I'll probably just do design work. I love finding really special pieces of furniture.

Tags: Love, Work  ✍ Author: Ellen DeGeneres

Tags: Place, Reality  ✍ Author: Walt Disney

The details are not the details. They make the design.

Tags: Greatest, Matter  ✍ Author: Charles Eames

Tags: Art, Good  ✍ Author: Paloma Faith

The demise of Google Reader, if logical, is a reminder of how far we've come from the cuddly old 'I'm Feeling Lucky' Google days, in which there was a foreseeably-astonishing delight in the way Google's evolving design tricks anticipated what users would like.

Tags: Feeling, Old  ✍ Author: James Fallows

Tags: Off, Shoes  ✍ Author: Rio Ferdinand

Every step and every movement of the multitude, even in what are termed enlightened ages, are made with equal blindness to the future; and nations stumble upon establishments, which are indeed the result of human action, but not the execution of any human design.

Tags: Future, Human  ✍ Author: Adam Ferguson

The debate that I'm interested in having is with seriously smart people about how we design institutions in the 21st century that will genuinely address problems of poverty and educational underachievement.

Tags: Problems, Smart  ✍ Author: Niall Ferguson

Tags: Building, Ok  ✍ Author: Zaha Hadid

As a woman, I'm expected to want everything to be nice and to be nice myself. A very English thing. I don't design nice buildings - I don't like them. I like architecture to have some raw, vital, earthy quality.

Tags: Nice, Woman  ✍ Author: Zaha Hadid

I've always thought that design can have equal importance to the idea of internal architecture. Professionally, things can be very dogmatic - you do the architecture, someone else does the interiors, someone else does the furniture, the fabric, etc. But I think design is all-encompassing.

Tags: Someone, Thought  ✍ Author: Zaha Hadid

If I wanted to do clothes or if I wanted to make a building or design a choreography, you are able to do that - they are all under a similar kind of design umbrella.

Tags: Great, School  ✍ Author: Gus Hall

I do what I love to do at the moment. If I wake up tomorrow and decide I want to dance, that's what I'd do. Or design clothes. I think I'd throw myself into whatever I'm doing now. It's not about abandoning what I was doing before, or giving up. It's about knowing that if I die tomorrow, I lived the way I wanted to.

Tags: Love, Tomorrow  ✍ Author: Ayumi Hamasaki

I don't set goals. Like, that's what I want to be doing however many years from now. I do what I love to do at the moment. If I wake up tomorrow and decide I want to dance, that's what I'd do. Or design clothes.

Tags: Love, Tomorrow  ✍ Author: Ayumi Hamasaki

At the pinnacle of great design are products so gorgeous and lust-worthy that you want to lick them: a Porsche 911, Samsung's Luxia TV, an Eames lounge chair or anything by Loro Piana.

Tags: Great, Tv  ✍ Author: Ayumi Hamasaki

Tags: Age, Wanted  ✍ Author: Igor Ivanov

Design is people.

 ✍ Author: Jane Jacobs

Marc Jacobs is full of creative people and Louis Vuitton is again a name on the door, a name that has existed for many years but I'm a collaborator there and I bring in other people, other artists and I work with a great creative design team.

Tags: Great, Work  ✍ Author: Marc Jacobs

But I'm blessed to work with great people. I collaborate with brilliant stylists both here and in Paris. I work with a great design team. I really allow everyone to bring their ideas. I almost rely on them to inspire me.

And one more thing.

Tags: End, Experience  ✍ Author: Steve Jobs

Design is the fundamental soul of a man-made creation that ends up expressing itself in successive outer layers of the product or service.

Tags: Soul, Together  ✍ Author: Steve Jobs

The design of the Mac wasn't what it looked like, although that was part of it. Primarily, it was how it worked. To design something really well, you have to get it. You have to really grok what it's all about. It takes a passionate commitment to really thoroughly understand something, chew it up, not just quickly swallow it.

Tags: Takes, Understand  ✍ Author: Steve Jobs

In most people's vocabularies, design means veneer. It's interior decorating. It's the fabric of the curtains and the sofa. But to me, nothing could be further from the meaning of design.

Tags: Meaning, Means  ✍ Author: Steve Jobs

Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.

Tags: Looks, Works  ✍ Author: Steve Jobs

Tags: Human, Technology  ✍ Author: Mitchell Kapor

I really see myself continuing to design clothes, fragrances.

Tags: Clothes, Continuing  ✍ Author: Kim Kardashian

I studied to be an architect. And I find tremendous similarities between building a company and the design process. Businesses have to do their planning on the fly in a fashion similar to an architect sketching.

Tags: Between, Fashion  ✍ Author: Jeffrey Katzenberg

I've come up through art school, through painting, through graphic design, through advertising, through TV commercials and music video. I've designed books, built billboards, matchbooks, corporate identities. I continuously paint, I've done conceptual art pictures.

Tags: Life, May  ✍ Author: Charles Lamb

I am persuaded, that if any attempt is made to improve the education of the poor, and such an unmanly spirit should guide the resolution of a society or committee for that purpose, it would render the design abortive.

Tags: Education, Society  ✍ Author: Joseph Lancaster

Language, philosophy, and science are interwoven into the design of words, which are manipulated to create surprising illusions.

Tags: Science, Words  ✍ Author: John Langdon

The basic problem is that web 2.0 tools are not supportive of democracy by design. They are tools designed to gather spy-agency-like data in a seductive way, first and foremost, but as a side effect they tend to provide software support for mob-like phenomena.

Tags: Democracy, Problem  ✍ Author: Jaron Lanier

The wisdom of crowds works when the crowd is choosing the price of an ox, when there's a single numeric average. But if it's a design or something that matters, the decision is made by committee, and that's crap. You want people and groups who are able to think thoughts before they share.

Tags: Single, Wisdom  ✍ Author: Jaron Lanier

So much of design is context.

Tags: Context  ✍ Author: Richard Madden

I could design an $800 shoe line; it's easy. You use the best materials and you can make beautiful shoes. It's easier than making great shoes for $90.

Tags: Best, Great  ✍ Author: Richard Madden

My strengths as a businessman lie in the design and sale of women's shoes, and I have never been comfortable with complicated or technical legal or business documents.
