From a book within a book:
“He said that architecture was truly the greatest of the arts, because it was anonymous, as all greatness. He said that the world had many famous buildings, but few renowned builders, which was as it should be, since no one man had ever created anything of importance in architecture, or elsewhere, for that matter. The few whose names have lived were really impostors, expropriating the glory of the people as others expropriated its wealth.”
