What Landscapes give Permanent Delight.  Such and such a landscape has features eminently suited for painting, but I cannot find the formula for it; it remains beyond my grasp as a whole.  I notice that all landscapes which please me permanently have a simple geometrical scheme of lines underneath all their complexity.  Without such a mathematical substratum no scenery becomes artistically pleasing.  Perhaps this rule may be applied symbolically to human beings.
