Form ever follows function.
Louis H. Sullivan
Not marble, nor the gilded monuments
Of princes, shall outlive this powerful rhyme;
But you shall shine more bright in these contents
Than unswept stone, besmear\'d with sluttish time.
When wasteful war shall statues overturn,
And broils root out the work of masonry,
Nor Mars his sword, nor war\'s quick fire shall burn
The living record of your memory.
\'Gainst death, and all-oblivious enmity
Shall you pace forth; your praise shall still find room
Even in the eyes of all posterity
That wear this world out to the ending doom.
So, till the judgment that yourself arise,
You live in this, and dwell in lovers\' eyes.
Conception, my boy, fundamental brain work, is what makes all
thedifference in art.
Dante Gabriel Rosetti
That thou art blam\'d shall not be thy defect,
For slander\'s mark was ever yet the fair;
The ornament of beauty is suspect,
A crow that flies in heaven\'s sweetest air.
So thou be good, slander doth but approve
Thy worth the greater being woo\'d of time;
For canker vice the sweetest buds doth love,
And thou present\'st a pure unstained prime.
Thou hast passed by the ambush of young days
Either not assail\'d, or victor being charg\'d;
Yet this thy praise cannot be so thy praise,
To tie up envy, evermore enlarg\'d,
If some suspect of ill mask\'d not thy show,
Then thou alone kingdoms of hearts shouldst owe.
