« All quotes from this author

Yet actual physical size has an emotional meaning. We relate everything to our own size, and our emotional response to size is controlled by the fact that men on the average are between five and six feet high.. ..If practical considerations allowed me, cost of material, of transport, etc., I should like to work on large carvings more often than I do. The average in-between size does not disconnect an idea enough from prosaic everyday life. The very small or the very big (sculpture, fh) takes on an added size emotion.
The sculptor speaks (1937), as quoted in Letters of the great artists from Blake to Pollock -, Richard Friedenthal, Thames and Hudson, London, 1963, p. 253 (translation Daphne Woodward)

Give 'em time and they'll blame Bush. Give 'em time. But air pollution vs. feminazis? Ha!

Absolute size by itself is no indicator of success and achievement, let alone of managerial competence. Being the right size is.

Peter F. Drucker

A seed is small in size. But it carries in its womb leaves, flowers, fruits, nay even the whole tree. The human brain is very much like a seed. It may not have a great shape and size. But it traps within itself endless possibilities. It is a fountainhead of thoughts and promises that can be fulfilled.
