He Who Seeks…

March 21, 2009 § 6 Comments

I found this poem by architect Moshe Safdie on Ted Talks:

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 being will 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 and the nature of the universe and the nature of man we shall seek truth

If we seek truth, we shall find beauty.
