“Rather fail with honor than succeed by fraud.” Sophocles
We, the makers, do nothing so well as the gargoyles. We have freedom, not purpose, we are made of flesh that dies, not stone that remains, for ages. We pursue leisure, treasure, pleasures, while they stand watch, never failing.
“Fail to honor people,they fail to honor you; but of a good leader, who talks little, when his work is done, his aims fulfilled, they will all say, 'We did this ourselves.'” Lao Tzu
