Try not to become a man of success. Rather become a man of value.

If A is a success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z.
Work is x; y is play; and z is keeping your mouth shut.

Excerpt | Like A Good Society

the first thing which taut identified in katsura was that anonymous quality he had always considered the essence of good architecture. he was convinced that the work of a great artist shod transcend subjectivity and the vanity of self-expression. in this spirit, gazing at the villa he exclaimed, " not an individualistic building, everything seems egalitarean." at katsura, taut actually found the ideas for a new architecture that he had already applied in his working-class housing estate in berlin, designed in the twenties.

an architectural work is anonymous to the extent that the architect's hand cannot be identified and it is impossible to attribute it to the "style" typical of a period. for his reason taut also rejected formalism: on his principles architecture was supposed to be freed from the shackles of the historical styles as well as contemporary "modernism". architecture - so taut declared in die neue baukunst - will be made to participate in the "new order of our existence", freed from all social constraints.

already in 1929, as the result of this vision, taut set himself the objective of "achieving an authentic freedom in the elements of architecture... freedom for the individual elements means that all of them cooperate in a perfectly equal way, so effacing any hierarchy of higher and lower, since the indispensability of the individual components is immediately obvious."

taut expressed these ideas in his album devoted to katsura. on sheet 12, next to the plan of the old shoin with the moon-viewing platform and the garden with its stone pathways that intersect diagonally, taut wrote, "why is it that no line of the house is continued into the garden? because each element - house, water, landing stage, tree, stone - has an independent life. it only seeks good relationships - like a good society."

Excerpt | Nelson Mandela

Difficulties break some men but make others. No axe is sharp enough to cut the soul of a sinner who keeps on trying, one armed with the hope that he will rise even in the end.

Mandela, N. (1975) Letter to Winnie Mandela

Excerpt | The Giving Tree

And after a long time the boy came back again.
"I am sorry, Boy," said the tree, "but I have nothing left to give you - My apples are gone."
"My teeth are too weak for apples," said the boy.
"My branches are gone," said the tree.
"You cannot swing on them -"
"I am too old to swing on branches," said the boy.
"My trunk is gone," said the tree.
"You cannot climb -"
"I am too tired to climb," said the boy.
"I am sorry," sighed the tree.
"I wish that I could give you something... but I have nothing left. I am an old stump. I am sorry..."
"I don't need very much now," said the boy, "just a quiet place to sit and rest. I am very tired."
"Well," said the tree, straightening herself up as much as she could,
"Well, an old stump is a good for sitting and resting. Come, Boy, sit down. Sit down and rest."
And the boy did.
And the tree was happy.

Excerpt | Blaming The Whiskey

... with a rush of feeling he felt that this must be happiness. As soon as the thought came to him, he fought it back, blaming the whiskey. The very idea was as dangerous as presumptive speech: happiness could not be sought or worried into being, or even fully grasped; it should be allowed its own slow pace so that it passes unnoticed, if it ever comes at all.
