"Measure can be considered the quantitative definition of irreducible magnitudes." [R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz, The Temple in Man, page 57]

"Proportion belongs to geometry and harmony, measurement to the object and to arithmetic; and one necessitates the other. Proportion is the comparison of sizes; harmony is the relationship to measures; geometry is the function of numbers." [R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz, The Temple in Man, page 61]
