“The person who lives in the moment cannot have style.”

“Do I have any favourite techniques [for designing]? Techniques are habits, and habits are a refusal of the moment and a reliving of the past. A habitual person is not interested in the present, but a person with habits can have style. The person who lives in the moment cannot have style.”
~ MILES NEWLYN

  1. As a long time fan of Miles Newlyn, and his work, I must say that quote “…Techniques are habits, and habits are a refusal of the moment and a reliving of the past…” makes him all the more intriguing as a person. He makes that POV is an easy one to see.

    Thanks for always pushing out inspiring content, David.
