Technology is making design more exciting, with color, wallpaper, textures, fabrics that could never have been created without the technology.
David Bromstad wallpaper quote

Family love is messy, clinging, and of an annoying and repetitive pattern, like bad wallpaper.
— P. J. O'Rourke

This wallpaper is dreadful, one of us will have to go.
— Oscar Wilde

As for types like my own, obscurely motivated by the conviction that our existence was worthless if we didn't make a turning point of it, we were assigned to the humanities, to poetry, philosophy, painting -- the nursery games of humankind, which had to be left behind when the age of science began. The humanities would be called upon to choose a wallpaper for the crypt, as the end drew near.
— wallpaper quotation by Saul Bellow
