Seekers after truth and beauty

He who seeks truth shall find beauty.
He who seeks beauty shall find vanity.

He who seeks order, shall find gratification.
He who seeks gratification, shall be disappointed.

He who considers himself the servant of his fellow beings shall find the joy of self-expression.
He who seeks self-expression, shall fall into the pit of arrogance.

Arrogance is incompatible with nature.
Through nature, the nature of the universe and the nature of man, we shall seek truth.

If we seek truth, we shall find beauty.
— Moshe Safdie, architect.
