R. Buckminster Fuller favorite quotes

When I was in my third year of college, my second University, working on my third idea for a major, my dad, who is an inventor, suggested I do a paper on R. Buckminster Fuller.  It lead me to immediate focus and eventually, a degree in architecture.  Ironically, after my dad's near death experience in 2007, I realized that I connected with only one side of Fuller's work.  All of the sudden this "structured" yet creative field of work wasn't enough.  I longed to find the little girl that wrote songs about peace.  The happy go lucky little one sitting on the kitchen counter listening to my mom and her friends talk and laugh.  I wanted to reconnect
with my core. A lot of what you see here are tools that not only help me in that search, but show me ways to find the balance of intellectual pursuits, deep human connection, self knowledge, and humility to know I am only scratching the surface with this work.  

The first half of my life, I enjoyed Bucky's engineering and innovative technology.  Now I am deeply moved by his balance of heart and mind.  Rock on synergy!  Check him out for yourself, maybe you'll connect with something else in his theory and work.

My favorite Bucky quotes:

Dare to be naive.

If the success or failure of the planet and human beings depended on who I am and what I do, how would I be, and what would I do?

Either war is obsolete or men are.

Love is omni-inclusive, progressively exquisite, understanding and compassionately attuned to other than self.

The opposite of nature is impossible.

God to me is a verb, not a noun, proper or improper.
