uti in hominis corpore e cubito, pede, palmo, digito ceterisque particulis symmetros est eurythmiae qualitas, sic est in operum perfectionibus.

Just as in the human body the symmetry of arms, feet, hands, fingers and other parts is the quality of good rhythm, so it is in the perfecting of buildings.
