Make no little plans . . .

Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men's blood and probably themselves will not be realized. Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will not die.

- Daniel H. Burnham

Hey, wasn't this guy the chief architect of the Chicago World Fair?

Or am I crazy?

Yup. He was pretty much the chief architect of Chicago, after the fire in the late 1800s. Most of Chicago was built by him and he made skyscraper architecture an american art form. Really awesome dude - he wrote a book called the 'Plan of Chicago', and for a century now, it continues to influence urban planning in the city.
