There is the elephant-designer, the kind that is always on the safe side…he just doesn’t want trouble and where one would be enough, he books four…Then there’s the stingy type…you’d think he had to pay for every bolt out of his own pocket. There’s the parrot, who doesn’t work out the plans himself, but copies them…There’s also the snail…the minute you touch him he draws back and hides in his shell, which is the rule book…And finally, there’s the butterfly…all they about is making something new and beautiful, never considering that when a work is planned carefully it comes out beautiful automatically”.
