William Shakespeare: When we mean to build

“When we mean to build,

We first survey the plot, then draw the model;

and when we see the figure of the house,

Then must we rate the cost of the erection

which if we find outweighs ability,

What do we then but draw anew the model

In fewer offices, or at least desist

To build at all?”

—William Shakespeare
Henry IV, Part2, I.iii,1598.
