"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

Vanbrugh, Temple of the Four Winds, Castle Howard, York, 1724

To seek the timeless way we must first know the quality without a name.

There is a central quality which is the root criterion of life and spirit ...

... in a man, a town, a building, or a wilderness.

This quality is objective and precise, but it cannot be named.

Christopher Alexander
