Really do not create picturesquely. Go away this sort of effects to the cliffs, the mountains and the solar. A human being who dresses picturesquely is not picturesque but a buffoon. A farmer doesn’t costume picturesquely. But he is.
Develop as well as you can. Not improved. Do not pressure by yourself. And not even worse. Do not intentionally deliver on your own down to a reduced level than the one particular on which your delivery and upbringing have placed you. Even if you are going into the mountains. Converse to the farmers in your very own language. The Viennese attorney who talks to farmers in hayseed dialect have to be eradicated.
Fork out focus to the sorts in which the farmer builds. Since they are ancestral wisdom, compound solidified. But seek out the cause driving the form. If technological advancements have made it achievable to strengthen the type, then that advancement must constantly be employed. The threshing flail is superseded by the threshing device.
The basic requires a vertical design the mountains a horizontal a single. Human operate need to not compete with the operate of God. The Habsburgwarte disturbs the range of the Vienna Woods, but the Hussars’ Temple suits in harmoniously.
Really don’t imagine about the roof, but in its place about rain and snow. Which is how the farmer thinks–so in the mountains he builds the flattest roof probable, according to his technical expertise. In the mountains the snow mustn’t slide off when it needs to, but when the farmer desires it to. So he should be equipped to climb on to the roof to distinct the snow away devoid of placing his existence in threat. We as well have to make the flattest roof doable with ourtechnological encounter.
Be truthful! Character can only bear real truth. It can very easily cope with iron lattice bridges, but it abhors gothic arches with bridge-towers and loopholes.
Never be scared of remaining rebuked for remaining unmodern. Changes to the outdated making fashion are only allowed when they constitute an enhancement. If not adhere to the previous. Simply because the real truth, even if it is hundreds of many years previous, has additional interior connections with us than the lie that walks guiding us.
