We've bought new desks for our studio - nice shiny white ones - and we're all delighted with them. I'm a great believer that the environment in which one sits has a significant effect on ones output - particularly for those working in the creative sector.
But anyway, it prompted me to find some quotes about desks...
"If a cluttered desk is the sign of a cluttered mind, what is the significance of a clean desk?"
"A desk is a dangerous place from which to view the world"
John le Carre
"Happiness is a very small desk and a very big wastebasket"
..and my favourite...
"You can tell a person by the kind of desk they keep. If the president of a company has a clean desk then it must be the executive vice president who is doing all the work"
My own desk?... cluttered I'm afraid!
