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

There was, it appeared, a mysterious rite of initiation through which, in
one way or another, almost every member of the team passed. The term that
the old hands used for this rite -- West invented the term, not the practice --
was `signing up. By signing up for the project you agreed to do whatever
was necessary for success. You agreed to forsake, if necessary, family,
hobbies, and friends -- if you had any of these left (and you might not, if
you had signed up too many times before).
-- Tracy Kidder, _The Soul of a New Machine_

I believe that if people would learn to use LSDs vision-inducing capability
more wisely, under suitable conditions, in medical practice and in conjuction
with meditation, then in the future this problem child could become a wonder
child.
-- Dr. Albert Hoffman, the discoverer of LSD
