„Disadvantages… can be entirely removed by… the ridge-dormer. By its use space in the roof, otherwise of little value, becomes the most desirable.“

—  Ernest Flagg American architect 1857 - 1947
Context: Disadvantages... can be entirely removed by... the ridge-dormer. By its use space in the roof, otherwise of little value, becomes the most desirable. Instead of being gloomy, stuffy and hot, the dormers render it perfectly ventilated, light at all times, and cool in hot weather. In frame buildings, it is not so easy, because there must be tie beams... to withstand the thrust of the roof.... Where low stone walls are used... the strength of the walls is sufficient to withstand the thrust...<!--Ch. III

„Words do not express thoughts very well. They always become a little different immediately after they are expressed, a little distorted, a little foolish.“

—  Hermann Hesse German writer 1877 - 1962
Context: Words do not express thoughts very well. They always become a little different immediately after they are expressed, a little distorted, a little foolish. And yet it also pleases me and seems right that what is of value and wisdom to one man seems nonsense to another. Sometimes quoted in grammatically corrected form as "They always become a little different immediately after they are expressed..." but the apparent editing error here is retained in the published versions of this translation.
