“As we speak of poetical beauty, so ought we to speak of mathematical beauty and medical beauty. But we do not do so; and that reason is that we know well what is the object of mathematics, and that it consists in proofs, and what is the object of medicine, and that it consists in healing. But we do not know in what grace consists, which is the object of poetry.”
—Blaise Pascal (16231662)
“Every day our garments become more assimilated to ourselves, receiving the impress of the wearers character, until we hesitate to lay them aside without such delay and medical appliances and some such solemnity even as our bodies.”
