„If he's happy to sit on an electric chair and tell a truth or a lie then I'm happy to sit on an electric chair and we'll see what the outcome is, because I've got no doubt in my mind what happened.“

—  Billy Davies Scottish association football player and manager 1964

Billy seems to be using the expression "electric chair" when he means a lie detector.

„The art of a chair is not its resemblance to art, but is partly its reasonableness, usefulness and scale as a chair.“

—  Donald Judd artist 1928 - 1994

Quelle: 1990s, "It’s Hard to Find a Good Lamp," 1993, p. 7; Quoted in: " Furniture http://www.juddfoundation.org/furniture/judd-furniture" at juddfoundation.org, 2014
Kontext: The art of a chair is not its resemblance to art, but is partly its reasonableness, usefulness and scale as a chair. These are proportion, which is visible reasonableness. The art in art is partly the assertion of someone's interest regardless of other considerations. A work of art exists as itself; a chair exists as a chair itself. And the idea of a chair isn't a chair.

„If a chair or a building is not functional,“

—  Donald Judd artist 1928 - 1994

Quelle: 1990s, "It’s Hard to Find a Good Lamp," 1993, p. 7; Lead paragraph; as cited in: Richard Padovan. Towards Universality: Le Corbusier, Mies and De Stijl, (2013), p. 82
Kontext: Eighteen years ago someone asked me to design a coffee table. I thought that a work of mine which was essentially a rectangular volume with the upper surface recessed could be altered. This debased the work and produced a bad table which I later threw away. The configuration and the scale of art cannot be transposed into furniture and architecture. The intent of art is different from that of the latter, which must be functional. If a chair or a building is not functional, if it appears to be only art, it is ridiculous... A work of art exists as itself; a chair exists as a chair itself.

„If anything, they are rearranging the deck chairs on the Hindenburg.“

—  Stephen Colbert American political satirist, writer, comedian, television host, and actor 1964

White House Correspondents' Association Dinner (2006)
Kontext: Then you write, "Oh, they're just rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic." First of all, that is a terrible metaphor. This administration is not sinking. This administration is soaring. If anything, they are rearranging the deck chairs on the Hindenburg.

„There are no parliamentary procedures and no coercion from the Chair.“

—  Hyman George Rickover United States admiral 1900 - 1986

Kontext: The Quakers have an excellent approach to thinking through difficult problems, where a number of intelligent and responsible people must work together. They meet as equals, and anyone who has an idea speaks up. There are no parliamentary procedures and no coercion from the Chair. They continue the discussion until unanimity is reached. I want you guys to do that. Get in a room with no phones and leave orders that you are not to be disturbed. And sit there until you can deal with each other as individuals, not as spokesmen for either organization.

—  Benito Mussolini Duce and President of the Council of Ministers of Italy. Leader of the National Fascist Party and subsequent Republican… 1883 - 1945

The others are fighting to maintain the privileges of caste and class. We are proletarian nations that rise up against the plutocrats.
