“This historical sense, which is a sense 
of the timeless as well as of the temporal and of the timeless and of the temporal together, is what makes [an architect] traditional. And it is at the same time what makes [an architect] more acutely conscious of his place in time, of his own contemporaneity.”

             -T.S. Eliot, “Tradition and the Individual Talent.” (extrapolated to architecture)
