Famous Quotes from Gaston Bachelard

Gaston Bachelard quote #89 from The Poetics of Space

Sometimes the house of the future is better built lighter and larger than all the houses of the past so that the image of the dream house is opposed to that of the childhood home. Late in life with indomitable courage we continue to say that we are going to do what we have not yet done we are going to build a house. This dream house may be merely a dream of ownership the embodiment of everything that is considered convenient comfortable healthy sound desirable by other people. It must therefore satisfy both pride and reason two irreconcilable terms.
