« There are in all ten terms of proportions, established by the neo-Pythagorean School:
(c-b)/(b-a)=c/c, arithmetic proportion;
(c-b)/(b-a)=c/b, geometrical proportion;
(c-b)/(b-a)=c/a, harmonic proportion;
(b-a)/(c-b)=c/a
(b-a)/(c-b)=b/a
(b-a)/(c-b)=c/b
(c-a)/(b-a)=c/a
(c-a)/(c-b)=c/a
(c-a)/(b-a)=b/a
(c-a)/(c-b)=b/a, Fibonacci series. »

« The name of the geometrical proportion (a/b=c/d) was in Greek, and in Vitruvius, analogia; harmoniously ordered or rhythmically repeated proportions or “analogies” introduced “symmetry” and analogical recurrences in all consciously composed plans. […] For this notion of symmetry seen as correlating through the interplay of proportions the elements of the parts and of the whole, the Renaissance coined the suggestive words commodulatio and concinnitas. »
