Frank Lloyd Wright’s houses leaked when it rained.

I’m talking about this Frank Lloyd Wright. Even though they leaked, he created works of art.

In school I was taught to design ordinary houses. The kind that are water tight, safe, and look like the neighbors.

No one becomes well-known doing the work they are told to do. They become well-known creating something new. Something that people want. Something that people can’t forget once they see it.

A school can’t create a Frank Lloyd Wright. Only someone like Frank Lloyd Wright can. Visionary. Persistent. Deliberate. Doing the work that peers think is outrageous.
