“We owe it to the fields that our houses will not be the inferiors of the virgin land they have replaced.  We owe it to the worms and the trees that the buildings we cover them with will stand as promises of the highest and most intelligent kinds of happiness”.

~ Alain de Bolton

The Architecture of Happiness

“Nothing in the affairs of men is worthy of great anxiety”

~ Plato

“Life to me is the greatest of all games.  The danger lies in treating it as a trivial game, a game to be taken lightly, and a game in which the rules don’t matter much.  The rules matter a great deal.  The game has to be played fairly or it is no game at all.  And even to win the game is not the chief end.  The chief end is to win it honorably and splendidly.”

“When we build, let us think that we build forever”.

~John Ruskin

“What we look for in a home is a place that will repair us, that will make us more whole than we are.  A place to inspire us toward grace.”

~ Bobby McAlpine
