“Architecture is measured against the past; you build in the present and you try to imagine the future.� Richard Rogers

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” Leonardo da Vinci

“I call architecture frozen music” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“Architecture … is then among the most important arts: and its desirable to introduce taste into an art which shows so much” Thomas Jefferson

“If Nature had been comfortable, mankind would never have invented architecture...In a house, we all feel of the proper proportions. Everything is subordinated to us, fashioned for our use and our pleasure.” Oscar Wilde, The Decay of Lying (1889)

“Art is the lie that enables us to realize the truth.”

Pablo Picasso, Lantern - Volumes 26-27, 1976, p. 281

“Warriors of the light are not perfect. Their beauty lies in accepting this fact and still desiring to grow and to learn.� Paulo Coelho, The Manual of the Warrior of Light (1997)

“Πότε ο κόσμος ευημερεί;” ρωτήσανε τον Διογένη. “Όταν οι βασιλιάδες φιλοσοφούν και οι φιλόσοφοι βασιλεύουν.” Διογένης

“Τα βιβλία που ο κόσμος αποκαλεί ανήθικα είναι τα βιβλία που δείχνουν στον κόσμο τη δική του αισχρότητα.” Oscar Wilde

“No matter what I said they insisted on thinking of God as something outside themselves. Something that yearns to take every indolent moron to His breast and comfort him. The notion that the effort has to be their own . . . and that the trouble they are in is all their own doing . . . is one that they can’t or won’t entertain.” Robert A. Heinlein, Stranger in a Strange Land
