“I know the price of success: dedication, hard work and an
unremitting devotion to the things you want to see happen.” –
Frank Lloyd Wright
Do you really want your life to count? In the long annals of human history, maybe your name won’t even appear as a footnote, but it is still possible for you to play an important part in the evolution of human society. In that much do you want to be successful, to leave behind a legacy that counts?
I don’t think that I would have heard the name Frank Lloyd Wright or bothered to find out about him, unless I’d heard the Simon and Garfunkle song whose title is his name. Nevertheless, whether I’d heard of him or not, wouldn’t have changed the impact he had on the world of architecture or the shape of 20th Century buildings.
Frank had a passion for his work; he became dedicated to changing
the landscape of our cities in putting his ideas forward. His hard work and unremitting devotion has left its imprint on our world and has inspired architects who came after him to make their own contribution to our world.
You may have no interest in architecture, buildings or the urban landscape, but you are equally able to succeed in the things you’d would like to see happen; if you will be dedicated, hard working and have an unremitting devotion to your life’s work whatever you have decided it will be!
