This is very important, for no work can be rightly done without honesty and incorruptibility.More Marcus Vitruvius Pollio quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
For we must not build temples according to the same rules to all gods alike, since the performance of the sacred rites varies with the various gods.More Marcus Vitruvius Pollio quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Trees which grow in places facing the course of the sun are not of porous fiber but are solid, being drained by the dryness... The trees in sunny neighborhoods, therefore, being solidified by the compact texture of their fiber, and not being porous from moisture, are very useful, so far as durability goes, when they are hewn into timber. The lowland firs, being conveyed from sunny places, are better than those highland firs, which are brought here from shady places.More Marcus Vitruvius Pollio quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
