“Among all the studies and reasoning, light  chiefly delights the beholder; and among the great  features of mathematics the certainty of its  demonstrations is what preeminently tends to  elevate the mind of the investigator.  Perspective,  therefore must be preferred to all the discourses  and systems of human learning.” – Leonardo da Vinci Light and Perspective
