Edmund Burke

whispering crane institute, rick andersonSaw this quote tonight, it seems to have really struck something in me.

So much sadness and hate and violence, including the Cleveland woman who killed her small child by “scalding her baby to death”.

I suppose I would be remiss if I didn’t say I was feeling in quite the melancholy mood.

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”  – Edmund Burke

By Rick Anderson

The Whispering Crane Institute was originally formed to act as the umbrella organization for the Philosophy of Design Symposium, and other seminars and workshops given by Rick Anderson and Richard L. Dube’. In the year 2000 WCI became a sole proprietorship owned by Rick Anderson. Today the WCI provides design and consultation services for Landscape Contractors, acts as a Green Industry think tank, and provides training for others in the form of workshops, seminars, and individual consulting. The WCI also provides written material, opinions, case-studies and how-to articles for industry trade magazines.


  1. i love you and your work and your blog, thank you from all of us self taught quasi-designers out here. On the above quote, anything is true in one dimension or another, but evil will not triumph for it, like all things will fulfill the purpose for which it was created, our perfection and reunion. Thanks
