Every wise man

"For as outwardly every wise man carries himself gravely in public places ... yet inwardly has imagination and fire which sometimes flies out unrestrained, just as nature sometimes flies out to delight or amuse us (...laughter, contemplation or even horror...) -- So in Architecture the outward ornament is to be solid, proportionable according to rule, masculine and unaffected."
