Changes in the traditional way of building are only
by Adolf Loos

permitted if they are an improvement.
Otherwise stay with what is traditional,
for truth, even if it be hundreds of years old has
a stronger inner bond with us than the lie that walks by our side.
- Adolf Loos

He hates everything that wants to draw him out of his
acquired and secured position and that disturbs him.

- Adolf Loos

The work of art is brought into the world without there being a need for it.
The house satisfies a requirement.
The work of art is responsible to none;
the house is responsible to everyone.
The work of art wants to draw people out of their state of comfort.
- Adolf Loos

Does it follow that the house has nothing in common
with art and is architecture not to be included in

- Adolf Loos

turn into opportunities to do what you came here to do.
- Neale Donald Walsch

LOVE LETTERS TO YOURSELF
This is taken from a love letter (a gentle reminder)
I wrote to myself recently.
Live in your joy today.
Be authentic. Love yourself. First.
Love others from your own abundance.
Life Changes. Circumstances change.
Sometimes you try to fit your old way
of being into new circumstances
rather than becoming new yourself.
Embrace transformation as an opportunity.
And keep on writing love letters to yourself.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

Our creator is the same and never changes
despite the names given Him by people here
and in all parts of the world.
Even if we gave Him no name at all,
He would still be there, within us,
waiting to give us good on this earth.
- George Washington Carver

The River of Life has no judgments.
The River flows with no concept of good and bad - right and wrong.
The fields and dreams of men may be nourished by the River of Life,
or flooded and covered with silt, and the River just flows.
Men may catch fish and live on the River of Life,
or they may founder in a storm and drown, and the River just flows.
The River of Life is timeless.
It is not unchanging, but it is timeless,
and it changes in its own time.
The River of Life knows no obstacles.
The River can cut through solid rock - in its own time.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

"I realized I was looking at you,
in your visit, through old glasses.
Speaking old words.
Telling old stories.
I realize that in my life I've made so many
physical changes and I need to give my spirit time to catch up."
Time for my spirit to look at my friend
through the new glasses of current life experiences.
Old friends are precious.
They become even more treasured when they are wrapped
in the currentness of life experiences
and not relegated to the past in which they once lived.
- Mary Anne Radmacher
