You know those moments when you feel fully alive? … those moments when you are fully in the moment and you want the moment to last forever?
This quote puts the search for these moments front and center:
“There is a central quality which is the root criterion of life and spirit in a man, a town a building, or a wilderness.
This quality is objective and precise, but it cannot be named.
The search which we make for this quality, in our own lives, is the central search of a person, and the crux of any individual person’s story.
It is the search for those moments and situations when we are most alive.”
— Christopher Alexander, A Timeless Way of Building, 1979
