Gombrich on the enjoyment of symmetry

“Luckily it is a mistake to think that what cannot be defined cannot be discussed. If that were so, we could talk neither about life nor about art…The arrangements of elements according to similarity and difference and the enjoyment of repetition and symmetry extend from the stringing of beads to the layout of the page in front of the reader, and, of course, to the rhythms of movement, speech and music, not to mention the structures of society and the systems of thought.”   ~EHG, 1978Image
