If the federal government had been around when the Creator was putting His
hand to this state, Indiana wouldn\'t be here. It\'d still be waiting for an
environmental impact statement.
Alas! \'tis true, I have gone here and there,
And made my self a motley to the view,
Gor\'d mine own thoughts, sold cheap what is most dear,
Made old offences of affections new;
Most true it is, that I have look\'d on truth
Askance and strangely; but, by all above,
These blenches gave my heart another youth,
And worse essays prov\'d thee my best of love.
Now all is done, save what shall have no end:
Mine appetite I never more will grind
On newer proof, to try an older friend,
A god in love, to whom I am confin\'d.
Then give me welcome, next my heaven the best,
Even to thy pure and most most loving breast.
The brevity of human life gives a melancholy to the profession of the architect. -Emerson, Journals,
We must be steady enough in ourselves, to be open and to let the winds of life blow through us, to be our breath, our
inspiration; to breathe with them, mobile and soft in the limberness of our bodies, in our agility, our ability, as it were,
to dance, and yet to stand upright.
T. S. Eliot
