We must free ourselves of the hope that the sea will ever rest. We must learn to sail in high winds.
~ Aristotle Onassis (January 20, 1906 - March 15, 1975)
If I were asked to say what is at once the most important production of Art and the thing most to be longed for; I should answer; A beautiful House; and if I were further asked to name the production next in importance and the thing next to be longed for; I should answer; A beautiful Book. To enjoy good houses and good books in self-respect and decent comfort, seems to me to be the pleasurable end towards which all societies of human beings ought now to struggle.
~ William Morris (March 24, 1834 - October 03, 1896)
