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.
