Famous quotes containing the word designed:

    They are a very decent generous lot of people out here and they don’t expect you to listen.... It’s the secret of social ease in this country. They talk entirely for their own pleasure. Nothing they say is designed to be heard.
    Evelyn Waugh (1903–1966)

    Man is an artifact designed for space travel. He is not designed to remain in his present biologic state any more than a tadpole is designed to remain a tadpole.
    William Burroughs (b. 1914)

    It may be the first in what I trust will be a rapidly growing and influential genre—the novel designed on purpose to be excluded from the Booker short-list.
