Quotes

...Before becoming president Barack Obama described the great need for compassion in times of economic crisis. "There's a lot of talk in this country about the federal deficit,” he said. “But I think we should talk more about our empathy deficit - the ability to put ourselves in someone else's shoes; to see the world through those who are different from us – the child who's hungry, the laid-off steelworker, the immigrant woman cleaning your dorm room.”"
"Whilst many architects achieve great success, few achieve distinction in all facets of architecture as Richard did" he said
He said: "You can find people who are more square-jawed. More chiselled. Look less like Wallace."
