In considering the Origin of Forms, it is quite conceivable that a designer, reflecting on the mutual affinities of architectures, on their analogical relations, their typological distribution , genealogical succession, and other such facts, might come to the conclusion that each form had not been independently created, but had descended, like varieties, from other forms. Nevertheless, such a conclusion, even if well founded, would be unsatisfactory, until it could be shown how the innumerable forms constructing this world have been modified, so as to acquire that perfection of structure and coadaptation which most justly excites our admiration. I am fully convinced that forms are not immutable; but that those belonging to what are called the same genera are lineal descendants of some other and generally extinct forms, in the same manner as the acknowledged varieties of any one form are the descendants of that form.

Never trust a cop in a raincoat. Beware of enthusiasm and of love, both are temporary and quick to sway. If asked if you care about the world’s problems, look deep into the eyes of he who asks, he will never ask you again. Never give your real name. If ever asked to look at yourself, don’t.
