Taliesin, June 18, 1957.
This is a condensed version of an interview that can be found here for free: The video was split into several segments and rearranged to shorten what was originally 14 minutes.

"No man is free who is afraid. And he is afraid until he has developed the certainty that comes from a creative life and a creative role in life by way of art, religion, and science." - FLW

"Mediocrity is always dishonest. You may not think that is a true statement, but let's go it the other way around and say dishonesty is always mediocre."-FLW

"Why have we denied and gone against every fundamental principle that we found our forefathers—or would have found if we studied it—declared as freedom? I can't understand it, unless it is that all our standards are so mixed, like our blood, that we have lost sight of anything straightforward, clean, true, and original."-FLW

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.
