Beauty of Nature

“Beauty is a conspicuous element in the abstract completeness aimed at in the higher mathematics ; it is the goal of physics as it seeks to construe the order of the universe ; it ought at least to be the inspiration of all study of life… It raises for us the question of the depth and reach of our awareness. This needs the poet’s prayer that more of reverence in us dwell.”

John Oman, The Natural and the Supernatural
