Watchers

"Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace(...)"

Imagine - John Lennon



Tyler Durden from Fight Club:
"Man, I see in Fight Club the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see it squandered. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our great war is a spiritual war. Our great depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars, but we won't. We're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off."

"Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around."

- Sofia Serrano
in Vanilla Sky

"What is Bad? I've told you already: everything that has in it's foundation, weakness, jealusy and revenge."

Chapter LVII
THE ANTICHRIST  
NIETZSCHE

Samuel Barber - Agnus Dei - www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1gmgP…

The Voices of the Great Spirit.

When we say the right thing, when we do the right thing, we are working for the Great Spirit.
The Great Spirit is the best of the Mankind can do.

Building with Light - Robert Elwall

Suggested by cyrus-inc, a very good book that explains the history of architectural photography from it's beginning till today.


The Eyes of the Skin - Juhani Pallasmaa

Suggested by stkennedy it was one of the best books I've read about architecture.

"What is architectural quality? It's easy, it doesn't mean to appear on architecture guides or in architecture history neither being published. Architectural quality can mean only one thing, that a building touches me"


                                                             -Peter Zumthor
