More From Maya Lin
- "It’s funny, as you live through something you’re not aware of it."
- "Art is very tricky because it’s what you do for yourself. It’s much harder for me to make those works than the monuments or the architecture."
- "I deliberately did not read anything about the Vietnam War because I felt the politics of the war eclipsed what happened to the veterans. The politics were irrelevant to what this memorial was."
More In Freedom
- "Technology will definitely solve all our problems, but in the process it will create brand new ones. But that’s O.K. because the most you can expect from life is to get to solve better and better problems."― Scott Adams
- "You have an absolute freedom in Mexican writing today in which you don’t necessarily have to deal with the Mexican identity. You know why? Because we have an identity… We know who we are. We know what it means to be a Mexican."― Carlos Fuentes
- "Freedom makes a huge requirement of every human being. With freedom comes responsibility. For the person who is unwilling to grow up, the person who does not want to carry is own weight, this is a frightening prospect."― Eleanor Roosevelt
