It is said the engineer makes the bridge between art and science. I don't feel much as a scientist, eventhough I apply much of their methods. But I do feel artist.

I admire the highest realisations of the human mind. Great bridges, elegant cathedrals and geant tunnels impress me more than wealth and splendour…

And I am still there, astonished that us, simples humans, could have built such great things…
