I found this wonderful quote from Wilson Bentley (in 1925):

Under the microscope, I found that snowflakes were miracles of beauty; and it seemed a shame that this beauty should not be seen and appreciated by others. Every crystal was a masterpiece of design and no one design was ever repeated. When a snowflake melted, that design was forever lost. And just to think, that that much beauty was gone, without leaving any record behind.

I was thinking if you could quantify beauty in each snowflake and there are infinite snowflakes, then that means they are infinitely beautiful. Which is just a wonderful thought, isn't it?
