Civilization

1933-1937 Construction of the Golden Gate Bridge

“Every human generation has its own illusions with regard to civilization; some believe they are taking part in its upsurge, others that they are witnesses of its extinction. In fact, it always both flames and smolders and is extinguished, according to the place and the angle of view.”

–Ivo Andrić, The Bridge on the Drina
