ガマンぎりぎりライン

unendurable line | by Daihei Shibata

Why is geometry often described as ‘cold’ and ‘dry?’ One reason lies in its inability to describe the shape of a cloud, a mountain, a coastline, or a tree. Clouds are not spheres, mountains are not cones, coastlines are not circles, and bark is not smooth, nor does lightning travel in a straight line… Nature exhibits not simply a higher degree but an altogether different level of complexity. — Benoit Mandelbrot

As long as algebra and geometry have been separated, their progress have been slow and their uses limited; but when these two sciences have been united, they have lent each mutual forces, and have marched together towards perfection. — Joseph-Luis Lagrange

There is geometry in the humming of the strings, there is music in the spacing of the spheres. — Pythagoras

Writing is the geometry of the soul. — Plato
