" Taste," says a celebrated divine, " requires a congruity between the internal character and the external appearance; the imagination will involuntarily form to itself an idea of such a correspondence.- "Martine's Hand-book of Etiquette, and Guide to True Politeness", Arthur Martine.
On the other hand, " during thirty years it has been a source of frequent elation to see each division, and each part of a division, working out into congruity with the rest- to see each component fitting into its place, and helping to make a harmonious whole."- "Herbert Spencer", J.
