A Bucketful of Joy

Posted on Updated on

Sometimes all you need is some inspirational words…

“A great architect is not made by way of a brain nearly so much as he is made by way of a cultivated, enriched heart.”

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”

“Art is never finished, only abandoned.”

“A Work of Art
… is not a living thing …
that walks or runs.
But the making of a life.
That which gives you a reaction.
To some it is the wonder of Man’s Fingers.
To some it is the wonder of the Mind.
To some it is the wonder of Technique.
And to some it is how Real it is.
To some, how Transcendent it is.

Like the 5th Symphony
it presents itself with a feeling
that you know it, if you have heard it once.
And you look for it,
and though you know it you must hear it again.
Though you know it you must see it again.
Truly a work of Art is one that tells us,
that Nature cannot make what man can make.”

“A structure becomes architectural, and not sculptural, when its elements no longer have their justification in nature. “

“For many years, I have lived uncomfortably with the belief that most planning and architectural design suffers for lack of real and basic purpose. The ultimate purpose, it seems to me, must be the improvement of mankind.”
