|Danish to English: Quote by renowned Danish architect P. V. Jensen Klint|
|Source text - Danish|
Idet da alle tidligere Tiders Skønhed er opladt for vor Tids Øje, gælder det for Architekten at tilegne sig det saaledes, at det bliver hans Ejendom, optaget i hans Person, i hans Smag, i hans Dannelse, at han ikke vil efterligne det gamle, men giver det genfødt, idet han giver sig selv.
|Translation - English|
As the beauty of all previous ages is accessible to the eye of our era, it is crucial for the architect to seize upon this – to possess it, absorb it into his very being, his taste, his refinement, not to replicate the old, but to give it new life by rendering it from himself.
