by Lawrence Halprin

I also hoped and this was very true in the beginning -
that this would also be a place that people would be
able to walk in to the fountain and use it in a nice
way of reading and examining the quotations on the blocks.
- Lawrence Halprin

feeling about what that place wants to be,
you see? And it's not just me.
Me and my talent comes in taking that consensus and
then making something wonderful out of it -
a work of art.
- Lawrence Halprin

And you finally get to a consensus, where you get a
sense of what really ought to be done,
and then they give it to me and then I draw it.
I mean draw it in the sense, the philosophical sense.

I suppose and I hope that the young guys who are out
there losing their lives at least feel the same way I did.
I shouldn't think about this very much because I'm
almost weeping when I think about it.
- Lawrence Halprin

Because over and over again, the times that I've done
really good things is because I've had a wonderful client of some kind,
and a lot of it depended on me to induce them to be creative.
- Lawrence Halprin

One is, that they will feel about you that you're going

and within knowledge everything is included;

because this has been given to you by others -

As the witnessing deepens,
you start becoming drunk with the divine.
That is what is called ecstasy.

not sitting for anything in particular,
just enjoying how beautiful
just sitting doing nothing is,
how relaxing, how restful.
- Osho
