Later in life, Alden B. Dow was asked how he wanted to be remembered and he replied, “…for my philosophy.” His philosophy, A Way of Life Cycle, focused on his belief that every human is creative. He believed if every human is allowed the freedom to develop and grow their own unique, innate gifts, they will find limitless results to offer the world. As he stated, “Everyone has creative ability. When a person is awakened to that fact in himself; all kinds of creative things can happen.” A Way of Life Cycle is the culmination of over 40 years of developing and refining his philosophy. This philosophy was not just words on a piece of paper used to impress and delight those who read it. These are words he lived by; they defined him, his actions and his work.
