A Year of Creating Dangerously, Day 161: Saturday Life Quotes – Frank Lloyd Wright

Frank-Lloyd-Wright (1)

“An idea is salvation by imagination.”

Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959), the great American architect, had his 150th birthday this week. He was not around to enjoy it, of course, but his outstanding buildings are still around for us to enjoy. And his words remain, too, holding up almost as marvelously as his works. Wright provides this Saturday’s Life Quotes:

“Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.”

“Space is the breath of art.”

“There is nothing more uncommon than common sense.”

“I believe in God, only I spell it Nature.”

“No stream rises higher than its source. What ever man might build could never express or reflect more than he was. He could record neither more nor less than he had learned of life when the buildings were built.”7c5eb57bc26639a5eb29e31b3877fed2

“The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen.”

“The present is the ever moving shadow that divides yesterday from tomorrow. In that lies hope.”flw0112

“Art for art’s sake is a philosophy of the well-fed.”

“The heart is the chief feature of a functioning mind.”

“The longer I live, the more beautiful life becomes.”8c66f641d4f330c13de44e120e903b49
