Quote of the Day

Found this gem in my land use planning course - it is a quote by an early-20th century planner that, in several variations, has nearly become a mantra for public planners.
"Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men's blood and probably will themselves not be realized. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will never die, but long after we are gone will be a living thing, asserting itself with ever-growing insistency."
-- Daniell Burnham, 1907
