"Conditions for creativity are to be puzzled; to concentrate; to accept conflict and tension; to be born everyday; to feel a sense of self."
Tell a Friend-Erich Fromm

"Always design a thing by considering it in its next larger context -- a chair in a room, a room in a house, a house in an environment, an environment in a city plan."
Tell a Friend-Eliel Saarinen, "Time", July 2, 1956

"Buddhism teaches us the value of moderation in all things. Sports, exercise, fitness, business and life usher in vibrancy and wellness that makes for a healthier, happier life yet, in excess, it can strip us of the vitality accrued. Moderation allows us to dance between any two extremes with great agility. Extreme approaches in sports, fitness, business and life can lead to injury, illness and burnout. Being really good at what you do is a delicate balance. Great athletes achieve this balance."
Dr. Jerry Lynch
