Other people's words

posted 30 November 2004
Ah, to build, to build!
That is the noblest art of all the arts.
Painting and sculpture are but images,
Are merely shadows cast by outward things
On stone or canvas, having in themselves
No separate existence. Architecture,
Existing in itself, and not in seeming
A something it is not, surpasses them
As substance shadow.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Which is why I prefer coding to consultancy. Powerpoint is merely the painting on the roof; the code is the cathedral.
