"It is better to travel well than to arrive."Arne Jacobsen on Buddha

"One travels more usefully when alone, because he reflects more."Arne Jacobsen on Thomas Jefferson
"Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not."Arne Jacobsen on Ralph Waldo Emerson
"The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page."Arne Jacobsen on Saint Augustine
"Architecture tends to consume everything else, it has become one's entire life."
"Proportions are what makes the old Greek temples classic in their beauty. They are like huge blocks, from which the air has been literally hewn out between the columns."
