"A sculptor wields The chisel, and the stricken marble grows To beauty."
"No person who is not a great sculptor or painter can be an architect. If he is not a sculptor or painter, he can only be a builder."
"The sculptor produces the beautiful statue by chipping away such parts of the marble block as are not needed - it is a process of elimination."
"So what we have tried to do in our later buildings is to try to be completely consistent, as a painter is consistent or as a sculptor is consistent. Architecture also must be very consistent."
"A sculptor is a person who is interested in the shape of things, a poet in words, a musician by sounds."
"It is a mistake for a sculptor or a painter to speak or write very often about his job. It releases tension needed for his work."
