Eminently Triangle

 "But if cattle or lions had hands, so as to paint with their hands and produce works of art as men do, they would paint their gods and give them bodies in form like their own—horses like horses, cattle like cattle."
Xenophanes, fragments 6, c.a. 580 BC

“A triangle, if it could speak, would likewise say that God is eminently triangle, and a circle that God’s nature is eminently circular” 
Baruch Spinoza, Letter 56
quoted by Yitzhak Y. Melamed, Spinoza’s Anti-Humanism: An Outline
