„No house should ever be on a hill or on anything. It should be of the hill. Belonging to it.“

—  Фрэнк Ллойд Райт, Context: No house should ever be on a hill or on anything. It should be of the hill. Belonging to it. Hill and house should live together each the happier for the other. Frank Lloyd Wright: An Autobiography (1932) page 168

„First we look at the hills in the painting,
Then we look at the painting in the hills.“

As quoted in Lin Yutang's My Country and My People (1935), pp. 99 and 248 Compare: We're made so that we love First when we see them painted, things we've passed Perhaps a hundred times nor cared to see; And so they are better, painted,—better to us, Which is the same thing. Art was given for that; God uses us to help each other so, Lending our minds out. Robert Browning, "Fra Lippo Lippi" (1855)

„West of Arkham the hills rise wild, and there are valleys with deep woods that no axe has ever cut.“

—  H.P. Lovecraft American author 1890 - 1937
Context: West of Arkham the hills rise wild, and there are valleys with deep woods that no axe has ever cut. There are dark narrow glens where the trees slope fantastically, and where thin brooklets trickle without ever having caught the glint of sunlight. On the gentle slopes there are farms, ancient and rocky, with squat, moss-coated cottages brooding eternally over old New England secrets in the lee of great ledges; but these are all vacant now, the wide chimneys crumbling and the shingled sides bulging perilously beneath low gambrel roofs. The old folk have gone away, and foreigners do not like to live there. French-Canadians have tried it, Italians have tried it, and the Poles have come and departed. It is not because of anything that can be seen or heard or handled, but because of something that is imagined. The place is not good for imagination, and does not bring restful dreams at night.

„It was a house without kindness, never meant to be lived in, not a fit place for people or for love or for hope. Exorcism cannot alter the countenance of a house; Hill House would stay as it was until it was destroyed.“

—  Shirley Jackson, The Haunting of Hill House
Context: This house, which seemed somehow to have formed itself, flying together into its own powerful pattern under the hands of its builders, fitting itself into its own construction of lines and angles, reared its great head back against the sky without concession to humanity. It was a house without kindness, never meant to be lived in, not a fit place for people or for love or for hope. Exorcism cannot alter the countenance of a house; Hill House would stay as it was until it was destroyed.
