Charles Von Rospach Quote


Picture Quote:



Rules are made to be broken—true. Also true is that breaking rules out of ignorance leads to disaster, while breaking them from knowledge can lead to the truly special. It can also lead to disaster, too. Don't break rules unless you know them well enough to know when they shouldn't apply.  - Charles Von Rospach
