Alfred North Whitehead claimed that beauty is the harmony of contrasts.

Discuss. Do you get annoyed when people try to put beauty into words? If that's true, do you think words themselves lack beauty?

One of my old profs from undergrad, John Haught, quotes Whitehead here. If you're into process philosophy and process theism, you might enjoy my prof's book, The Cosmic Adventure. When I was a drooling, willfully clueless undergrad picking my nose in Haught's Science, Myth, and Religion class, I often mentally omitted the "s" from the book's title.
