A round man cannot be expected to fit in a square hole right away. He must have time to modify his shape.
Mark Twain

To design is much more than simply to assemble, to order, or even to edit: it is to add value and meaning, to illuminate, to simplify, to clarify, to modify, to dignify, to dramatize, to persuade, and perhaps even to amuse. To design is to transform prose into poetry.
Paul Rand

Michio Kaku
