My dad was an architect, and he wasn't a rich guy, but in our little world in Philadelphia, he was famous. He loved to see his picture in the paper. I wanted to be more famous than him.
It's my observation that gardeners and gardening for a very long time have had to take a back seat. Architects are very famous; they've got huge projects. What goes on in and around them has been relegated to a very minor role.
Architects of grandeur are often the master builders of disillusionment.
Bryant H. McGill
Indeed, wretched the man whose fame makes his misfortunes famous.
