A Quote by Jules Henri Poincaré on balance, diversity, feeling, happiness, harmony, order, solution, and unity

What is it indeed that gives us the feeling of elegance in a solution, in a demonstration? It is the harmony of the diverse parts, their symmetry, their happy balance; in a word it is all that introduces order, all that gives unity, that permits us to see clearly and to comprehend at once both the ensemble and the details.

Jules Henri Poincare (1854 - 1912)
