„You employ stone, wood and concrete, and with these materials you build houses and palaces. That is construction. Ingenuity is at work.
But suddenly you touch my heart, you do me good, I am happy and I say: "This is beautiful."“

That is Architecture. Art enters in.

„No good friends, no bad friends; only people you want, need to be with. People who build their houses in your heart.“

—  Stephen King, libro It

Origine: It (1986), Ch. 16 : Eddie's Bad Break, §8
Contesto: Maybe, he thought, there aren't any such things as good friends or bad friends — maybe there are just friends, people who stand by you when you're hurt and who help you feel not so lonely. Maybe they're always worth being scared for, and hoping for, and living for. Maybe worth dying for, too, if that's what has to be. No good friends. No bad friends. Only people you want, need to be with; people who build their houses in your heart.
