“Rules are foolish, arbitrary, mindless things that raise you quickly to a level of acceptable mediocrity, then prevent you from progressing further.” —Bruce Barnbaum, from the book, The Art of Photography
“There are no rules for good photographs, only good photographs.” —Ansel Adams
“Rules of composition are deduced from the work of strong masters and used by weak imitators to produce… nothing.” —Edward Weston

From The Rules of Planning: Advice found on a wall in a planning office.
