WRIGHT'S ADVICE TO ASPIRING ARCHITECTS

``Take time to prepare. Ten years' preparation for preliminaries to architectural practice is little enough for any architect who would rise `above the belt' in true architectural appreciation and practice. ``Then go as far away as possible from home to build your first buildings. The physician can bury his mistakes,- but the architect can only advise his client to plant vines.

``Regard it as just as desirable to build a chicken-house as to build a cathedral. The size of the project means little in art, beyond the money-matter. It is the quality of character that really counts. Character may be large in the little or little in the large.''

From ``Modern Architecture,'' 1931
