In his book, Mr. DePree tells the story of how designer George Nelson urged
that the company also take on Charles Eames in the late 1940s. Maxs father,
J. DePree, co-founder of the company with herman Miller in 1923, asked Mr.
Nelson if he really wanted to share the limited opportunities of a then-small
company with another designer. "Georges response was something like this:
Charles Eames is an unusual talent. He is very different from me. The
company needs us both. I want very much to have Charles Eames share in
whatever potential there is."
-- Max DePree, chairman and CEO of Herman Miller Inc., "Herman Millers
Secrets of Corporate Creativity", The Wall Street Journal, May 3, 1988

One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If weve been bamboozled
long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. Were no
longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured
us. it is simply too painful to acknowledge -- even to ourselves -- that
weve been so credulous. (So the old bamboozles tend to persist as the
new bamboozles rise.)
-- Carl Sagan, "The Fine Art of Baloney Detection," Parade, February 1, 1987
