     Mathematics gives the so called "divine proportion." Thus 1+1=2, 1+2=3
etc. apply to the following number— 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89 etc.
     The sculptor of Phidias is typical. If the works of this renown sculptor of the Golden Age is used as a model then a well proportioned man 68 inches in height is built as follows: from the ground to his navel is 42 inches; from his navel to the crown of his head is 26 inches; from the crown of his head to the line of his breasts is 16 inches; and from his breasts to his navel is 10 inches. The ratio of these measurements are—
10/16 = 5/8, 16/26 = 813, 26/42=13/21, 42/68=21/34 .
     "These are those approximations of the golden section given by the successive terms 5, 8, 13, 21, 34 of the Fibonacci sequence."

     O. S. Fowler discovered three human temperments —
Vital, Motive, and Mental.
     1) Vital — Adipose, broad, rounded;
     2) Motive — Large bone, muscular, strong;
     3) Mental — Slender, lean (either) tall or short, features sharp.

Psalm 25, 7 
     Remember not the sins of my youth, or my transgressions; according to thy steadfast love remember me for thy goodness sake, O Lord!
