10 Things I Have Learned by Milton Glaser

It is a sort of collage of bits and pieces that I have assembled over 50 years. It includes a lot of things I’ve said before but I’ve repackaged them rather attractively. This is what I’ve learned.


An interesting take on "the meaning of life" or what it means to live a good life, or something like that. More than, say, thinking about what a good life would be, it evoked in me a feeling of what a good life would be. It also reminded me that I want to read Dante's Divine Comedy one day soon.

It, especially item 10, doesn't make me wish I were an industrial designer, in charge of packaging.

His comment at the end about the butcher buying cabbage didn't make sense to me, until I connected it with his analogy at the top of item 10: "butcher" -> "designer", "cabbage" -> "ethics", and "sweet-faced rabbit" -> "the Truth".
