As I get older I see that running has changed for me. What used to be about burning calories is now more about burning up what is false. Lies I used to tell myself about who I was and what I could do, friendships that cannot withstand hills or miles, the approval I no longer need to seek, and solidarity that cannot bear silence. I run to burn up what I don’t need and ignite what I do.
There are no good girls gone wrong - just bad girls found out.
The mother art is architecture.Without an architecture of our own we have no soul of our own civilization.
The sun never knew how great it was was until it struck the side of a building.
The good building is not one that hurts the landscape, but one which makes the landscape more beautiful than it was before the building was built.
Frank Lloyd Wright
Less is only more where more is no good.
Like with the Hufflepuff quote, I’m aware this was said to Harry, a Gryffindor, (and yes, I removed his name from the quote) but Ravenclaws are known to be very imaginative so I felt the quote suited them well. Please do not message me telling me that I made a mistake, I did this intentionally. Thanks!
Lou was the most beloved architect of our time… Yeah well think of anybody else; Frank Lloyd Wright was too cantankerous to love, Mies van der Rohe was, you couldn’t talk to him at all, Le Corbusier was mean. But Lou, now there was a man.
