Transport
Transport or transportation is the movement of humans, animals and goods from one location to another. Modes of transport include air, land (rail and road), water, cable, pipeline and space. The field can be divided into infrastructure, vehicles and operations. Transport is important because it enables trade between people, which is essential for the development of civilizations.
Transport
Like music my drawings transport us to the ambiguous world of the indeterminate.
Odilon Redon, quoted in: Jean-François Guillou (2000) Great Paintings of the World. p. 190
Transport
Public transport is functionality for people not engineers.
Johan Neerman “Het Laatste Nieuws” (December 2001), p. 16
Transport
The space of time in which a great work can now be accomplished is not marvellous. Brain, muscle, materials, and the means of rapid transport are instantly at command. If one has capital and a well-considered plan, the thing does itself. But that which is wonderful and which I can scarcely believe, although I have been in the midst of it, is the noble, artistic result which has come from the work of American artists who have had only a few months' time to prepare those very designs for the great buildings of the Exposition which have actually been executed with little change from the sketches which were presented in February, 1891.
Daniel Burnham (1891) attributed in: Charles Moore (1921) Daniel H. Burnham, architect, planner of cities. p. 72-73
