Karl Lagerfeld
“We need houses as we need clothes, architecture stimulates fashion. It’s like hunger and thirst — you need them both.”
Karl Lagerfeld

Hokusai Katsushika
“From the age of 6 I had a mania for drawing the shapes of things. When I was 50 I had published a universe of designs. But all I have done before the the age of 70 is not worth bothering with. At 75 I'll have learned something of the pattern of nature, of animals, of plants, of trees, birds, fish and insects. When I am 80 you will see real progress. At 90 I shall have cut my way deeply into the mystery of life itself. At 100, I shall be a marvelous artist. At 110, everything I create; a dot, a line, will jump to life as never before. To all of you who are going to live as long as I do, I promise to keep my word. I am writing this in my old age. I used to call myself Hokusai, but today I sign my self 'The Old Man Mad About Drawing.”
Hokusai Katsushika

Lynn Margulis
“Life did not take over the world by combat,
but by networking.”
Lynn Margulis, Microcosmos: Four Billion Years of Microbial Evolution

Antonio Machado
“Don't try to rush things: for the cup to run over, it must first be filled.”
Antonio Machado

Maya Angelou
“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style”
Maya Angelou
