For beauty three things are required. First, then, integrity or perfection: those things which are broken are bad for this very reason.
And also a due proportion or harmony. And again clarity: whence those things which have a shining color are calle beautiful.
St. Thomas Aquinas: Summa Theologiae, I, q. 39, a. 8.,
qoted by Jacques Maritain in Art et Scolastique,
Paris, 1927, page 250

By beauty of shapes I do not mean, as most people would suppose, the beauty of living figures or of pictures, but, to make my point clear,
I mean straight lines and circles, and shapes, plane or solid, made from them by lathe, ruler and square.
These are not, like other things, beautiful relatively, but always and absolutely.
