A. Architecture is the reaching out for the truth
B. All my work is much more peaceful than I am.
C. My buildings don't speak in words but by means of their own spaciousness.
D. Descriptions of my work depress me. They make me feel pinned down.
E. A doctor can bury his mistakes but an architect can only advise his clients to plant vines.
