Words of Wisdom From Great Designers

In my years of interviewing designers for magazine articles, white papers and blog posts, I've continually found that creatives are a quick-witted and eminently quotable bunch. It doesn't take much digging to extract pithy, profound (and sometimes gloriously profane) statements.

I'm not the only one who's noticed.

The Designer Says, a book compiled and edited by Sara Bader, features inspiring, funny and thought-provoking quotes from more than 100 of the industry's best creative minds – past and present.

My favorite piece of advice is this gem from the late, great Paul Rand: "It is important to use your hands. This is what distinguishes you from a cow or a computer operator."

What’s the most powerful or amusing design-related quote you've ever heard or read?
