We have a collection of 5 War quotes from Maya Lin

"When I was building the Vietnam Memorial, I never once asked the veterans what it was like in the war, because from my point of view, you don't pry into other people's business." (ID 36724)

"I started studying what the nature of a monument is and what a monument should be. And for the World War III memorial I designed a futile, almost terrifying passage that ends nowhere." (ID 36820)

"The definition of a modern approach to war is the acknowledgement of individual lives lost." (ID 36821)

"It was a requirement by the veterans to list the 57,000 names. We're reaching a time that we'll acknowledge the individual in a war on a national level." (ID 36823)

"I deliberately did not read anything about the Vietnam War because I felt the politics of the war eclipsed what happened to the veterans. The politics were irrelevant to what this memorial was." (ID 36825)
