Typographic quotes - meanings

msk14x's picture

I've been looking at typographic quotes, some from the forums on here, and just wondered if anyone could expand on the meaning of the one that attracted me the most?

"Helvetica is the typeface for a deserted island" - Friedrich Friedl

I'm asking just so I can get my head around the understanding of the quote, would be great if anyone could emphasise the meaning of this to me!

Thanks
