"The definition of success--To laugh much; to win respect of intelligent persons and the affections of children; to earn the approbation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give one's self; to leave the world a little better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition.; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm, and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived--this is to have succeeded."


"I take as metaphysical poetry that in which what is ordinarily apprehensible only by thought

is brought within the grasp of feeling, or that in which what is ordinarily only felt

is transformed into thought without ceasing to be feeling."

~ T.S. Eliot


"I want to float through you

on a raft made of skin

"I would like to explain the Tomba Brion...I consider this work, if you permit me, to be rather good and which will get better over time. I have tried to put some poetic imagination into it, though not in order to create poetic architecture but to make a certain kind of architecture that could emanate a sense of formal poetry....The place for the dead is a garden....I wanted to show some ways in which you could approach death in a social and civic way; and further what meaning there was in death, in the ephemerality of life—other than these shoe-boxes." 

~Carlo Scarpa

"Ever since my study experience and living in Florence, Italy, I've fallen in love with the  Italian language. It doesn't really matter what the word really means, all I know is when I hear the Italian language it transports me to a time when I grew as a designer and an individual the most."

"Music can truly melt me. When it comes to  the right melody beautifully balanced  with  perfect absence of lyrics or has the right selection of words, I find my emotions in harmony absolutely still, calm ,crying and smiling all at the same time and for the same reason.  Music waters the landscape inside me and it leaves me nurtured"
