Sullivan began the course of experimentation he had in mind for some time: \"to make an architecture that fitted its functions\" and that expressed those needs \"frankly and freshly\" with refenence to any \"architectural dictum, or tradition, or superstition, or habit.\" Every page of his autobiography declares his belief in the power of an inspired few to bring important change. \r\n\"here in Chicago the freedom of thought and action of the individual should not only be maintained, but held sacred\".\r\nChicago has risen to greatness \"by virtue of its brain men, who have made it what it is and who guarantee its future..its monstrous to suppose they must be suppressed, for they have in themselves qualities as noble, daring and inspired as ever quickened knights of old to deeds of chivalry.\"
