All below is strength; and all above is grace.
      - John Dryden

Never build after you are five and forty; have five years' income in hand before you lay a brick; and always calculate the expense at double the estimate.
      - Henry Kett

Like one who draws the model of a house beyond his power to build it who, half through, gives o'er, and leaves his part-created cost a naked subject to the weeping clouds.
      - William Shakespeare

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
