“[..] Beauty shows herself in a manner surprisingly allied to mathematics, for no medium exists through which beauty can be disclosed to senses but depends ultimately upon proportion for its success. Does the beauty lie in colour or sound? Both of these depend quite entirely upon the laws of proportion. Is beauty one of form or motion? Still more intimately are these connected with the proportional laws. Since one cannot produce genius, the best that can be done is to study those laws which even genius cannot succesfully defy.”
