"the beauty of the earth... is not monopolised by the parthenons and niagara falls of this world. it can also be found in a puddle of water or on an electric pole. the splendours of this earth are never anything other than its power to stir feelings of wonder, and human wonderment can satisfy itself with the most modest pretexts. the truth is that life is marvelous for every second that we consider it worth living - that is to say, whenever we feel at one with reality. seen in this light, the beauty of the earth would be nothing but the permanent flame of our instinct for life - an agent of conservation. personally, i prefer the instinct of conversation. for without exchange, without sharing, nothing keeps its charm for long. and that is the wish of our house: to continue, for a millenium or two, its passionate adventures in craftsmanship, to create, design, colour and, above all, have the good fortune to exchange and share it all with you."
