I heart Lewis Mumford

“There are moments when separation is advisable for even the most loving couples — when there is illness, or when the wife wants to sulk in silence or read a book in bed and the husband wants to listen to the radio or the phonograph or engage in conversation with a friend”.

“The provision of quiet sleeping quarters is one of our most effective alternatives to phenobarbital and other sedatives. Noise notoriously aggravates hypertension and gastric disorders, so some method of muffling it is one of the necessities of good functional planning.”
in High, White, and Handsome, an article for The New Yorker on Manhattan House, 1951
