"Richard Shapiro, a world-renowned art collector, furniture designer and antiques dealer based in Los Angeles, is also a superbly creative and daring landscape designer. On a quiet street in Holmby Hills, Shapiro has created a lush environment for his Hispano-Moorish residence. Hidden behind walls of Boston ivy and a forest of Japanese timber bamboo, it is an utterly private domain, silent and poetic—his escape from the world."

You’ve got to think high to rise

“If you think you are beaten, you are;
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you’d like to win, but think you can’t
It’s almost a cinch you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’ve lost,
For out in the world we find
Success being with a fellow’s will;
It’s all in the state of mind.

If you think you’re outclassed, you are:
You’ve got to think high to rise.
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But soon or late the man who wins
Is the one who thinks he can.”

Walter D. Wintle
