Famous quotes containing the words receive and/or architects:

    ... when I exclaim against novels, I mean when contrasted with those works which exercise the understanding and regulate the imagination.—For any kind of reading I think better than leaving a blank still a blank, because the mind must receive a degree of enlargement and obtain a little strength by a slight exertion of its thinking powers ...
    Mary Wollstonecraft (1759–1797)

    A great proportion of architectural ornaments are literally hollow, and a September gale would strip them off, like borrowed plumes, without injury to the substantials....

    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
