February 19, 1958
From the Forum Network's lecture titled "Frank Lloyd Wright - Creative Mind: The Architect as Creator"

"New York is the biggest mouth in the world. It appears to be prime example of the herd instinct, leading the universal urban conspiracy to beguile man from his birthright (the good ground), to hang him by his eyebrows from skyhooks above hard pavement, to crucify him, sell him, or be sold by him."

"Out of Americas rugged individualism captained by rugged captains of our rugged industrial enterprises we have gradually evolved a crude, vain power: plutocratic capitalism. Not true capitalism. I believe this is entirely foreign to our own original idea of democracy."

"I believe totally in a Capitalist System, I only wish that someone would try it."

"America needs no help to Broadacre City. It will haphazard build itself. Why not plan it?"

"Inevitably, there will develop a new form of community life, but just what it will be except as Broadacre City tentatively outlines it as free to grow, who can say? Not I. Who is going to say how humanity will eventually be modified by all these spiritual changes and physical advantages, sound and vision coming through solid walls to men, each aware of anything in or of the world he lives in without lifting a finger, making it unnecessary to go anywhere unless it is a pleasure to go. The whole psyche of humanity is changing and what that change will ultimately bring as future community I will not prophecy. It is already greatly changed."

Refinishing a Frank Lloyd Wright house - Second Coat Sikkens Cetol 2/3
It's a beautiful October day and we are applying the second coat of the Sikkens system of polyurethane coating to the Frank Lloyd Wright designed home, the Boulter House in Clifton, Ohio, a neighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio. We're filling the finishing nail holes with a mixture of brown iron oxide and the Cetol 2/3. It's a paste applied to the large finishing nail holes to the twin 4" x 14" Douglas Fir beams that span the 24' depth of the home. The top roof board is nailed on the west side of each twin beam. Correction to the date of the design, the home was designed in 1954 and constructed in 1956.
