" It is worth a pilgrimage to see. Everything is on so gigantic a scale, nothing is small-nothing is cheap, the statues are large; the palace is grand; the park covers a fair-sized county; the avenues are interminable."
"As for the garden with its fountains, it is a marvellous thing...."

"God created paper for the purpose of drawing architecture on it. Everything else is, at least to me, an abuse of paper".
"But usually I begin things through a drawing, so a lot of things are worked out in the drawing. But even then, I still allow for and want to make changes."

"I went a mile farther on the hills, and so came where they were digging in the tin mines.There were at least twenty mines all in sight, which employ a great many people at work almost night and day, but constantly all and every day, including the Lords Day, which they are forced to prevent their mines being overflowed with water".
"If the tin mines shut, it will be the end of places like St Just and Pendeen because they will become ghost towns".

'We reached Zennor churchtown about eight o,clock and found a fair accommodation at the public house; as good indeed as one might expect in such a retired district."
"The landscape is bare , yellow green and brown, dropping always down to bare rocks and a sea, all is desolate and forsaken, not linked up. But I like it.
(D H Lawrence)
