Design is a funny word. Some people think design means how it looks. But of course, if you dig deeper, it’s really how it works. The design of the Mac wasn’t what it looked like, although that was part of it. Primarily, it was how it worked. To design something really well, you have to get it. You have to really grok what it’s all about. It takes a passionate commitment to really thoroughly understand something, chew it up, not just quickly swallow it. Most people don’t take the time to do that.
~Steve Jobs, Wired Magazine, 1994
Love of admiration. Love of dress. Love of display. Coquetry. Sentiment. Caprice. Fickleness. Enthusiasm. Good sense. Vanity. Selfishness.
Nary a smidgeon of intellect. Logic. Rational thought. Leadership. Honour. Honesty. Ability to run a household, manage children/significant other/parents/in-laws and hold down a job (not that the fine print is all that clear).
Obviously sexist by today’s standards.
But we’ll cut D.W. Kellog some slack given he (of course, it is a he!) drew this in the nineteenth century.
And because it’s so pretty.
