Frank Lloyd Wright

American architect, 1867-1959

"Frank Lloyd Wright was an American architect, interior designer, writer, and educator, whose creative period spanned more than 70 years, designing more than 1,000 structures, of which 532 were completed. Wright believed in designing structures that were in harmony with humanity and its environment, a philosophy he called organic architecture. This philosophy was best exemplified by ""Fallingwater"" (1935). As a founder of organic architecture, Wright played a key role in the architectural movements of the twentieth century, influencing three generations of architects worldwide through his works. Wright designed houses, offices, churches, schools, skyscrapers, hotels, museums, and other structures."

Ramblings from a man who has loved and lost with the blame firmly placed upon his own shoulders; a vexing manuscript from Wright clearly revealing the effects of his personal upheavals. "I am regarded as though I had stolen myself, gone off with what was not my own. And I am traduced, derided, despised, held up to public contempt and loathing. My character is remorselessly assassinated: no means however vile are spared to injure my property or my work. It is a falsity that men respect and honor independent of thought and action. Tolerance in anything or anywhere is plainly a gentle lie. It is in no man's heart. The perception of Beauty is a moral test. The body is the first proselyte the soul makes. Our life is but the soul made known by its fruits, -- the body. The whole duty of man is expressed in one line. Make to yourself a perfect body! To be a man is to do a man's work! The true laborer is recompensed by his labor not by his employer. Laws are a matter of lawyers and judges. Lawyers and judges, as such, are not men of sense or principle but creatures of law: In any high moral sense they are not men at all! Earth song. Universal [in pencil]. I who have shown that I can behave particularly well am put under bonds for good behaviour! Every man should see that his influence is on the side of justice -- and let the courts make their own characters. Men talk about Bible miracles because there is no miracle in their lives. Cease to gnaw that crust, there is a ripe fruit overhead! Woe to him who wants a companion, for he is unfit even to be the companion even of himself! We inspire friendship in men when we have contracted friendship with the gods. Any reverence, even [if] a material thing proceeds from an elevation of character?". - With a few revisions; first page devoid of 3 inches of paper, marginal fraying and chipping, the two pages affixed together at head.
