It was Chicago with its World's Fair which vivified the national desire for civic beauty.
Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will not die, but long after we are gone be a living thing, asserting itself with ever-growing insistence.
Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men's blood and probably themselves will not be realized.
Remember that our sons and grandsons are going to do things that would stagger us.
