There are times of flourishing and abundance, when life feels in full bloom, energized and expanding. And there are times of fruition, when things come to an end. They have reached their climax and must be harvested before they begin to fade.

And then begins the gigantic megalopolis, the city-as-world, which suffers nothing beside itself and sets about annihilating the country picture.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/2862/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/2862/ <![CDATA[It is hard to go beyond your public. If they are satisfied with cheap performance, you will not easily arrive at better. If they know what is good, and require it. you will aspire and burn until you achieve it. But from time to time, in history, men are born a whole age too soon.]]> http://quotationsbook.com/quote/29885/ http://quotationsbook.com/quote/29885/ <![CDATA[It is almost systematically to constitute a natural moral law.
