John Keats曾說過,科學的解釋摧毀了彩虹的美麗。但我認為對某個事物的認知只會豐富你對這個事物本身的情感。

Recent years have shown a growing preoccupation with the circumstances surrounding the creative act and a search for the ingredients that promote creativity. This preoccupation in itself suggests that we are in a special kind of trouble-and indeed we are.

近年來有越來越多的人執著於創作的環境,並且想找出那些能激發創意的要素,這種執著本身就暗示著我們身處某種特殊的困境-而事實也確實如此。

Most people aren't trained to want to face the process of re-understanding a subject they already know. One must obtain not just literacy, but deep involvement and re-understanding.

大部份的人都不情願經歷對他們已知的事物進行再度了解的過程。但一個人必須掌握的不僅僅是讀寫能力,更是對事物深入研究和重新認識的能力。

If I pass on to you what is meaningful to me, it will be a better, more useable chunk of stuff, than if I attempted to pass on the whole business, most of which was not meaningful to me.

如果我將對我有意義的部份傳承給你,對你會更合適也更有用,勝過我將全部且包含一堆對我無意義的東西都一古腦兒地塞給你。

The marvelous part about a kite problem is that this is one area in which one can definitely judge its success or failure-that it will fly or it will not fly. I wish more problems could be so beautifully defined.


關於風箏最美妙的部份就是,你可以馬上判定它是成功或失敗--也就是飛不起來,但願有更多的問題也能定義得如此乾脆。

【A NOTE ON 100 QUOTES】

Charles Eames wrote very little in the way of formal books or articles. In fact, my co-editor, Eames Demetrios, has argued that the Eames films are the Eames essays. But Charles did have a remarkable facility with the spoken word, and his lectures were another critical part of his body of work---he sometimes spoke of the ideas in the same way as he spoke of the other products of the Eames Office. For this reason, a book of 100 quotes to celebrate the Eames centennial seemed like a natural. In searching for quotes, we turned to a number of sources: articles, books, films, interviews,lectures, notes and office files. The six Norton Lectures given at Harvard University in 1970-1971 are left largely unreferened in this collection because they work best as a cohesive whole.

Charles often talked abort constraints. The constraint of this project---because of our desire to see it in multiple languages---was to choose short quotes. These will surely whet your appetite to dig deeper.
