Famous quotes containing the word designed:

    ... in the movies Paris is designed as a backdrop for only three things—love, fashion shows, and revolution.
    Jeanine Basinger (b. 1936)

    Night City was like a deranged experiment in Social Darwinism, designed by a bored researcher who kept one thumb permanently on the fast-forward button. Stop hustling and you sank without a trace, but move a little too swiftly and you’d break the fragile surface tension of the black market; either way, you were gone ... though heart or lungs or kidneys might survive in the service of some stranger with New Yen for the clinic tanks.
    William Gibson (b. 1948)

    Haggerty: Girls! Girls! Girls! Be careful of my hats.
    Chorus Girl: Well, we gotta get down on the stage.
    Haggerty: I don’t care. I won’t allow you to ruin them.
    Dressing Room Matron: See, I told you. They were too high and too wide.
    Haggerty: Well, Big Woman, I designed the costumes for the show, not the doors for the theater.
    Dressing Room Matron: I know that. If you had, they’d have been done in lavender.
    James Gleason (1886–1959)
