quotes: kahn on desire

Posted by rigorousm on January 23, 2011

I don’t believe in need as a force at all. Need is a current, everyday affair. But desire — that is something else again. Desire is the forerunner of a new need. It is the yet not stated, the yet not made which motivates.

— Louis I. Kahn, in conversation, 1973
