William Burges fotka

„We have no architecture to work from at all; indeed, we have not even settled the point de depart… our art… is domestic, and… the best way of advancing its progress is to do our best in our own houses… if we once manage to obtain a large amount of art and colour in our sitting-rooms… the improvement may gradually extend to our costume, and perhaps eventually to the architecture of our houses.“

—  William Burges English architect 1827 - 1881

„There are three departments of architecture: the art of building, the making of time-pieces, and the construction of machinery.“

Immanuel Kant fotka

„To a high degree we are, through art and science, cultured. We are civilized — perhaps too much for our own good — in all sorts of social grace and decorum. But to consider ourselves as having reached morality“

—  Immanuel Kant German philosopher 1724 - 1804

for that, much is lacking. The ideal of morality belongs to culture; its use for some simulacrum of morality in the love of honor and outward decorum constitutes mere civilization. So long as states waste their forces in vain and violent self-expansion, and thereby constantly thwart the slow efforts to improve the minds of their citizens by even withdrawing all support from them, nothing in the way of a moral order is to be expected. For such an end, a long internal working of each political body toward the education of its citizens is required. Everything good that is not based on a morally good disposition, however, is nothing but pretense and glittering misery. In such a condition the human species will no doubt remain until, in the way I have described, it works its way out of the chaotic conditions of its international relations.
