ARCHITECT, n. One who drafts a plan of your house, and plans a draft of your money; who estimates the whole cost, and himself costs the whole estimate.

Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914?) American writer and journalist
“Architect,” The Cynic’s Word Book (1906)

Included in The Devil's Dictionary (1911), but just the first clause.
