“He should, above all, have a sense of proportion and be able to come to a prompt decision as to what is the greatest good to the greatest number.”
– Alister MacKenzie

Psychology of Design
“The designer of a course should start off on his work in a sympathetic frame of mind for the weak, and at the same time be as severe as he likes with the first-class player.”
