Improving Neighborhoods

A city is dying when it has an eye for real estate values but no heart for personal values,
When it has an understanding of traffic flow but no concern about the flow of human beings,
When we have competence in building but little time for ethical codes,
When human values are absent at the heart of the decision-making and planning and governing of a city
— it is dead and all that is left is decay.
(The Best of Herb Caen 1960-1975, Chronicle Books 1991, p.37)
