Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy. - Dale Carnegie
Always design a thing by considering it in its next larger context - a chair in a room, a room in a house, a house in an environment, an environment in a city. - Eliel Saarinen
It is not possible to design always the same. How to be different in each different place - that is the most important work and duty of the architect to find out. Each new situation requires a new architecture. - Jean Nouvel
No architecture is so haughty as that which is simple. - John Ruskin
I prefer drawing to talking. Drawing is faster and leaves less room for lies. - Le Corbusier
Any work of architecture that has with it some discussion, some polemic, I think is good. It shows that people are interested, people are involved. An important work of architecture will create polemics. - Richard Meier
Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun. - Mary Lou Cook
A great building must begin with the unmeasurable, must go through measurable means when it is being designed and in the end must be unmeasurable. - Louis Kahn
Where the spirit does not work with the hand there is no art. - Leonardo da Vinci
Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men's blood. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded, will not die. - Daniel Burnham
There is nothing wrong with change, as long as it is in the right direction. - Winston Churchill
Good buildings make and are made by their settings, and they are appropriately different in different locations. Climate, culture, topography and materials have helped create regional architectural languages that seem curiously right for their locations and for all times. - Jaquelin T. Robertson
The most effective way to cope with change is to create it. - L.W. Lynett
Every great architect is - necessarily - a great poet. He must be a great original interpreter of his time, his day, his age. - Frank Lloyd Wright
When you cease to dream you cease to live. - Malcolm Forbes
Building art is a synthesis of life in materialized form. We should try to bring in under the same hat not a splintered way of thinking, but all in harmony together. - Alvar Aalto
Vision is the art of seeing things invisible. - Jonathan Swift
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. - James Rouse
If we open a quarrel between the past and the present, we shall find that we have lost the future. - Winston Churchill
In the big picture, architecture is the art and science of making sure that our cities and buildings fit with the way we want to live our lives. - Bjarke Ingels
Nature is a labyrinth in which the very haste you move with will make you lose your way. - Francis Bacon
He who keeps the hills, burns the wood; he who keeps the streams drinks the water. - Chinese Proverb
