"Form follows function - that has been misunderstood. Form and function should be one, joined in a spiritual union"
"Great minds are to make others great. Their superiority is to be used, not to break the multitude to intellectual vassalage, not to establish over them a spiritual tyranny, but to rouse them from lethargy, and to aid them to judge for themselves"
