Here's an idea, although it comes from what Paolo (no student of social development history) imagined was the antithesis of arcology:
"To live content with small means;
to seek elegance rather than luxury;
refinement rather than fashion;
to be worthy, not respectable;
wealthy, not rich;
to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly;
to listen to the stars and birds, to babes and sages;
to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.
In a word,
to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common....
This is my symphony,
[to live in our small town]."
(William Ellery Channing, American moralist, Unitarian Clergyman and Author, 1780-1842)
