Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men's blood...

Daniel Hudson Burnham (4 September 18461 June 1912) was an American architect architect and urban planner.


  • 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, but long after we are gone be a living thing, asserting itself with ever-growing insistence. Remember that our sons and our grandsons are going to do things that would stagger us. Let your watchword be order and your beacon beauty.
    • Moore, Charles. Daniel H. Burnham, Architect, Planner of Cities (1921) Boston, Houghton Mifflin; Volume 2; Chapter XXV "Closing in 1911-1912;" Page 1921.
