code aesthetically pleasing

It [emacs] is written in Lisp, which is the only computer language that is beautiful. Neal Stephenson

I agree with him, the fact that that lisp does use only a few characters with a special meaning for most of the code and the fact that the two most used special characters are round makes most lisp code aesthetically pleasing. Some format code though, can be like going cyrillic
