Famous quotes containing the words form and function, function and/or form:

    Form and function are a unity, two sides of one coin. In order to enhance function, appropriate form must exist or be created.
    Ida P. Rolf (1896–1979)

    Our father has an even more important function than modeling manhood for us. He is also the authority to let us relax the requirements of the masculine model: if our father accepts us, then that declares us masculine enough to join the company of men. We, in effect, have our diploma in masculinity and can go on to develop other skills.
    Frank Pittman (20th century)

    There is no doubt that the loftiest written wisdom is either rhymed or in some way musically measured,—is, in form as well as substance, poetry; and a volume which should contain the condensed wisdom of mankind need not have one rhythmless line.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
