“A new idea is delicate. It can be killed by a sneer or a yawn; it can be stabbed to death by a joke or worried to death by a frown on the right person’s brow.”
– Charles Brower

  1. Similarly, from yesterday’s NY Times, “Big ideas are so hard to recognize, so fragile, so easy to kill. Don’t forget that, all of you who don’t have them.” From the obituary of Jock Elliott who was Chairman at Oglivy and Mather for many years. As a graphic designer and Swissophile, I really enjoy your blog and the lovely photos you have on Flickr. Thanks for your efforts!

  2. Wow, what a wonderful quote, thank you Gina! And thank you for your complementing words! :) Tina
