    The Greek word euphuia, a finely tempered nature, gives exactly
    the notion of perfection as culture brings us to perceive it; a
    harmonious perfection, a perfection in which the characters of
    beauty and intelligence are both present, which unites "the two
    noblest of things"--as Swift . . . most happily calls them in his
    Battle of the Books, "the two noblest of things, sweetness and
    light."
