C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Harmony
 
  Variety is the condition of harmony.
James Freeman Clarke.    
  1
        From harmony, from heavenly harmony,
This universal frame began:
From harmony to harmony
Through all the compass of the notes it ran,
The diapason closing full in Man.
Dryden.    
  2
  Harmonious words render ordinary ideas acceptable; less ordinary, pleasant; novel and ingenious ones, delightful. As pictures and statues, and living beauty, too, show better, by music-light, so is poetry irradiated, vivified, glorified, and raised into immortal life by harmony.
Landor.
