Whether it be the sweeping eagle in his flight, or the open apple blossom, the toiling workhorse, the blithe swan, the branching oak, the winding stream at its base, the drifting clouds, over all the coursing sun, form ever follows function, and this is the law. Where function does not change form does not change. The granite rocks, the ever brooding hills, remain for ages; the lightning lives, comes into shape, and dies in a twinkling. It is the pervading law of all things organic and inorganic, of all things physical and metaphysical, of all things human and all things superhuman, of all true manifestations of the head, of the heart, of the soul, that the life is recognizable in its expression, that form ever follows function. This is the law.

[Louis H. Sullivan; 1856 – 1924]

But I must explain to you how all this mis­taken idea of de­noun­cing plea­sure and prai­sing pain was born and I will give you a com­ple­te ac­count of the sys­tem, and ex­pound the ac­tu­al teach­ings of the great ex­plo­rer of the truth, the ma­ster buil­der of hu­man happ­iness. No one re­jects, dis­likes, or av­oids plea­sure it­self, be­cause it is plea­sure, but be­cause those who do not know how to pursue plea­sure ra­tio­nally en­coun­ter con­se­quen­ces that are ex­tre­me­ly pain­ful. Nor again is there any­one who lov­es or pur­sues or de­sires to ob­tain pain of it­self, be­cause it is pain, but be­cause occas­ional­ly ci­rcum­stan­ces occur in which toil and pain can pro­cure him some great plea­sure.
