Quotes

"
.. this subject [military architecture] … is not of a warlike and provocative nature, rather it is the essence of peaceful  co-existence. Fortresses were designed to maintain authority, not to usurp it. Military architecture is the art of defence, not of attack. Permanent fortifications are in essence non-aggressive and unprovocative.
"
