Decoration Quotations

Some people think that the truth can be hidden with a little cover-up and decoration. But as time goes by, what is true is revealed, and what is fake fades away.
Ismail Haniyeh

A formally harmonious product needs no decoration; it should be elevated through pure form.
Ferdinand Porsche

Prose is architecture, not interior decoration, and the Baroque is over.
Ernest Hemingway

The Church knew what the psalmist knew: Music praises God. Music is well or better able to praise him than the building of the church and all its decoration; it is the Church's greatest ornament.
Igor Stravinsky

Usually in theater, the visual repeats the verbal. The visual dwindles into decoration. But I think with my eyes. For me, the visual is not an afterthought, not an illustration of the text. If it says the same thing as the words, why look? The visual must be so compelling that a deaf man would sit though the performance fascinated.
Robert Wilson
