[I]f I were asked to name the chief benefit of the house, I would say: the house shelters daydreaming, the house protects the dreamer, the house allows one to dream in peace....[T]he house is one of the greatest powers of integration for the thoughts, memories and dreams of mankind....Without it, man would be a dispersed being. It maintains him through the storms of the heavens and through those of life.
From The Poetics of Space by Gaston Bachelard, pp. 6-7.
