Does it follow that the house has nothing in common
by Adolf Loos

Does it follow that the house has nothing in common
with art and is architecture not to be included in
the arts? Only a very small part of architecture belongs to art:
the tomb and the monument.
Everything else that fulfils a function is to be excluded from the domain of art.
- Adolf Loos

The work of art shows people new directions and thinks of the future.
The house thinks of the present.
- Adolf Loos

The house has to please everyone, contrary to the work of art which does not.
The work is a private matter for the artist.
The house is not.
- Adolf Loos

Architecture arouses sentiments in man.
The architect's task therefore, is to make those sentiments more precise.
- Adolf Loos

 

The law courts must appear as a threatening gesture toward secret vice.
The bank must declare: here your money is secure and
well looked after by honest people.
- Adolf Loos

Supply and demand regulate architectural form.
- Adolf Loos

The room has to be comfortable; the house has to look habitable.
- Adolf Loos

- Adolf Loos

At the beginning of the nineteenth century we abandoned tradition,
it's at that point that I intend to renew it because

built on the times that went before it.
- Adolf Loos

Man loves everything that satisfies his comfort.
He hates everything that wants to draw him out of his
acquired and secured position and that disturbs him.
Thus he loves the house and hates art.
- Adolf Loos

Changes in the traditional way of building are only
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

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

Comfort on difficult days,
Smiles when sadness intrudes,

Laughter to kiss your lips,
Sunsets to warm your heart,
Hugs when spirits sag,

Friendships to brighten your being,
Faith so that you can believe,
Confidence for when you doubt,
Courage to know yourself,
Patience to accept the truth,
Love to complete your life.

Steve Jobs' Three Rules of Life ...
1. Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life.
2. Don't be trapped by dogma -
which is living with the results of other people's thinking.
Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice.
3. Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition -
they somehow already know what you truly want to become.
- Steve Jobs

Being human, we are imperfect. That's why we need each other.
To catch each other when we falter.
To encourage each other when we lose heart.
Some may lead; others may follow; but none of us can go it alone.
- Hilary Clinton

When you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track
that has been there all the while waiting for you,
and the life you ought to be living is the one you are living.
When you can see that, you begin to meet people
who are in the field of your bliss,
and they open the doors to you.
I say, follow your bliss and don't be afraid,
and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be.
If you follow your bliss,
doors will open for you that wouldn't have opened for anyone else.
- Joseph Campbell

I honor you, Hero, for you do not play to the crowd.
You play to your own soul.
An audience of one fills the house with its appreciation and applause.
Others follow you, and may attempt to emulate you,
but that is not why you are a hero.
Fame may smile upon you, or it may not.
The world may cheer your name, or you may be the unknown warrior
who rescued comrades in battle,
or taught a young girl how to shed tears of joy.
Whatever you did, you did not do for fame.
If you had, you would not be a Hero.
You are a Hero for your bold courageous inspired action.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

you feel a loss of energy, a loss of power,
a sense of spiritual deadness.

I breathed a song into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For who has sight so keen and strong,
That it can follow the flight of song -
The song from beginning to end,
I found again in the heart of a friend.
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

If a man would follow, today, the teachings of the Old Testament,
he would be a criminal.
If he would follow strictly the teachings of the New,

Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow.
Just walk beside me and be my friend.

until you feel as deeply in your spirit as you think
in your mind that the counsel is wise.

where you would not have thought there would be doors,

Pitiful is the person who is afraid of taking risks.
Perhaps this person will never
be disappointed or disillusioned;
perhaps she won't suffer the way
people do when they have a dream to follow.
But when the person looks back -
and at some point everyone look back -
she will hear her heart, saying,
"What have you done with the miracles
that God planted in your days?
What have you done with the talents
God bestowed on you?"
- Paulo Coelho
