The 60's The 70's The 80's The 90's 2000 and beyond.. Philosophy "We are all born with genius. It's like our fairy godmother. But what happens in life is that we stop listening to our inner voices, and we no longer have access to this extraordinary ability to create poetry." "To design is to communicate clearly by whatever means you can control or master." "The real issue is not talent as an independent element, but talent in relationship to will, desire, and persistence. Talent without these things vanishes and even modest talent with those characteristics grows. "Computers are to design as microwaves are to cooking." "You have to be amazingly consistent and persistent. You have to work like hell. You cannot become an excellent practitioner without constantly working hard all your life. Sources Eskilson, Stephen.
