Dwelling Quotes

Image Quotes about Dwelling




Charles Baudelaire - For the perfect idler, for the passionate observer it becomes an immense source of enjoyment to establish his dwelling in the throng, in the ebb and flow, the bustle, the fleeting and the infinite. To be away from home and yet to feel at home anywhere; to see the world, to be at the very center of the world, and yet to be unseen of the world, such are some of the minor pleasures of those independent, intense and impartial spirits, who do not lend themselves easily to linguistic definitions. The observer is a prince enjoying his incognito wherever he goes.

Jiang Lu  - Based on our fieldwork, we have found that almost all the features of traditional cliff cave dwelling coincide with modern sustainable design principles.

They are the result of a people's adaptation to their environment with limited natural and technological resources. The people and their culture survived here for hundreds of years without leaving heavy marks on the environment.
