Thought behind the quote:
The past is a place we revisit all the time and it constantly lures us. Its steely grip prevents us from moving ahead in life .Burning bridges that lead to certain events, places and people can actually be an extremely liberating experience and hence it is a constructive and proactive activity. Building bridges can be as daunting an experience as burning them. The juncture where you choose to build a bridge can be full of challenge and may seem impossible. Again, what matters is where one is and what’s waiting for us on the other side. Most of the times we are building bridges that lead to places we don’t know anything about. Life has taught us one thing for certain, it is better to be moving towards the unknown than be stranded in one place and stagnating.
The greatest thing about architecture and construction is the actual realization of a mere idea and making a reality out of a hypothetical possibility. Architecture and engineering marvels have shown us that anything can be achieved as long as you are ready to put in hard work and you have began with an original thought in which you have full conviction. Here are some architectural and engineering marvels that will leave us awestruck. Truly one can build a bridge anywhere anytime in their life provided the other side really beckons you.
