Fun quotes about design that stuck

John Cleese demands you allow for contemplative thinking John Cleese maintains that it is necessary to allow for contemplative thinking.

A couple of days ago, I read an article on the Invision blog titled 72 quotes about design and creativity. That is a whole lot of quotes by any means but there were quite a few that really stuck. Here goes:

There is no such thing as a boring project. There are only boring executions - Irene Etzkorn
Great design is a multi-layered relationship between human life and its environment - Naoto Fukasawa
As we decrease uncertainty, we give ourselves permission to increase fidelity - Jonathan Irwin
Put hot triggers in the path of motivated people - B.J. Fogg
I have several times made a poor choice by avoiding a necessary confrontation - John Cleese
If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original - Sir Ken Robinson
Design is a solution to a problem. Art is a question to a problem - John Maeda
Design is an opportunity to continue telling the story, not just to sum everything up - Tate Linden

I’d have loved to provide commentary on each one but they self elaborate. What are some great quotes about design and making that you’ve encountered?
