He who seeks truth shall find beauty
He who seeks beauty shall find vanity

He who seeks order shall find gratification
He who seeks gratification shall be disappointed

He who considers himself a servant of his fellow beings shall find the joy of self expression
He who seeks self expression shall fall into the pit of arrogance

Arrogance is incompatible with nature
Through nature the nature of the universe and the nature of man we shall seek truth
If we seek truth we shall find beauty

~ Moshe Safdie

Yeah, that's a good one, too. Funny isn't it? Another one would be "If you love somebody let her free" I wonder if there's a general theme here. Is it a dichotomy between pursuing human-created values vs. inherent values of the universe or some sort? (1285)

Interesting quote =)

He's really full of Hebrew wisdom. Reminds me another paradoxical quote by Jesus: "Whoever tries to keep his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it." (Luke 17:33) (1284)
