"Being good in business
is the most fascinating kind of art."

-Andy Warhol

Who doesn't love a good inspirational quote?

The quote above by Andy Warhol is one of my favorites. Having started out in art, then working with small businesses and evolving into a small business person myself, this quote rings true to me.

I recently read an article by Print Magazine listing "89 quotes about design, advertising, creativity, and all ground in between." Here are a few that spoke to me.

"Good design is obvious. Great design is transparent."
-Joe Sparano


"It took me a few seconds to draw it, but it took me 34 years to learn how to draw it in a few seconds."
-Paula Scher

"The road to hell is paved with works-in-progress."
-Philip Roth  
"Where people aren't having any fun, they seldom produce good work."
-David Ogilvy  

"Don't worry about people stealing your ideas. If your ideas are any good, you'll have to ram them down people's throats."
-Howard H. Aiken

"A bad website is like a grumpy salesperson."
-Jakob Neilsen

"Design is where science and art break even."
-Robin Mathewr

"Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep."
-Scott Adams

"Recognizing the need is the primary condition for design."
-Charles Eames

"I try to make something each year that I can be proud of. If you can do that, year after year, suddenly you've got a career."
-Jon Wyville


I'd love to hear which quote(s) spoke to you. Let me know!
