About this Quote

This quote by Frank Lloyd Wright talks to the interconnectedness of all things in nature. He suggests that structures, like all other living things, are born of the Earth and the Sun. This implies that buildings, like all other living things, belong to a larger cycle of life and death. The Earth supplies the products for the building, while the Sun supplies the energy to create it. The structure is then sustained by the Earth and the Sun, and eventually goes back to the Earth when it is no longer needed. This quote speaks with the value of appreciating the environment and comprehending our place in the natural world. It likewise functions as a tip that we are all linked and that our actions have consequences. We need to be mindful of our impact on the environment and make every effort to create a sustainable future.
