"Unlike Keats, who said that knowing about the rainbow shatters its beauty, I feel that the knowledge about an object can only enrich your feelings for the object itself." - Charles Eames

"Most people aren’t trained to want to face the process of re-understanding a subject they already know. One must obtain not just literacy, but deep involvement and re-understanding." - Charles Eames

"I don’t believe in this “gifted few” concept, just in people doing things they are really interested in doing. They have a way of getting good at whatever it is." - Charles Eames

"Any time one or more things are consciously put together in a way that they can accomplish something better than they could have accomplished individually, this is an act of design." - Charles Eames
