We are all architects of the future. So what kind of a future will it be?
When English farmer Robert Worsley was asked why he didn’t sell his farmland for £275 million to developers of a 10,000 housing development project his reply was:
“Long after I have gone, Sussex will be spoiled. I will be one of the architects of that and that is what I want to resist”.
Thoughtful words that also echo the Ephebic Oath of Athenian citizenship from ancient Greece in 4BC:
“I will not leave my country smaller, when I die, but greater and better”.
