Since it [architecture] is music in space, as it were a frozen music. . . . If architecture in general is frozen music.
      - Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph von Schelling,
        Philosophie der Kunst (pp. 576, 593)

When we mean to build,
  We first survey the plot, then draw the model.
    And when we see the figure of the house,
      Then must we rate the cost of the erection,
        Which if we find outweighs ability,
          What do we then but draw anew the model
            In fewer offices, or at least desist
              To build at all?
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Fourth, Part II
         (Lord Bardolph at I, iii)

'Fore God, you have here a goodly dwelling and a rich.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Fourth, Part II

He that has a house to put 's head in has a good headpiece.
      - William Shakespeare, King Lear
         (Fool at III, ii)

In designing a house and gardens, it is happy when there is an opportunity of maintaining a subordination of parts; the house so luckily place as to exhibit a view of the whole design. I have sometimes thought that there was room for it to resemble a epic or dramatic poem.
      - William Shenstone

Architecture is frozen music!
      - Madame de Stael (Baronne Anne Louise Germaine de Stael-Holstein)

The sight of such a monument is like continual and stationary music which one hears for one's good as one approaches it.
  [Fr., La vue d'un tel monument est comme une musique continuelle et fixee qui vous attend pour vous faire du bien quand vous vous en approchez.]
      - Madame de Stael (Baronne Anne Louise Germaine de Stael-Holstein),
        Corinne (bk. IV, ch. III)

Form follows function.
      - Louis Henri Sullivan

God is in the details.
      - Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

The architect must not only understand drawing, but music.
      - Vitruvius Pollio (Marcus Vitruvius Pollio)

Behold, ye builders, demigods who made England's Walhalla [Westminister Abbey].
      - Walter Theodore Watts-Dunton,
        The Silent Voices--No. 4--The Minster Spirits

Spires whose "silent finger points to heaven."
      - William Wordsworth

A doctor can bury his mistakes but an architect can only advise his clients to plant vines.
      - Frank Lloyd Wright

Maybe we can show government how to operate better as a result of better architecture.
      - Frank Lloyd Wright
