    Re: Math Quotes

    Adams, Douglas
    (1952 - 2001)


    Numbers written on restaurant bills within the confines of restaurants do not follow the same mathematical laws as numbers written on any other pieces of paper in any other parts of the Universe.
    This single statement took the scientific world by storm. It completely revolutionized it. So many mathematical conferences got held in such good restaurants that many of the finest minds of a generation died of obesity and heart failure and the science of math was put back by years.

    Browne, Sir Thomas
    (1605-1682)

    ...indeed what reason may not go to Schoole to the wisdome of Bees, Aunts, and Spiders?
    what wise hand teacheth them to doe what reason cannot teach us? ruder heads stand
    amazed at those prodigious pieces of nature, Whales, Elephants, Dromidaries and Camels;
    these I confesse,
    are the Colossus and Majestick pieces of her hand; but in these narrow Engines there is
    more curious Mathematicks, and the civilitie of these little Citizens more neatly sets forth
    the wisedome of their Maker.

    In J. R. Newman (ed.) The World of Mathematics, New York: Simon and Schuster, 1956, p. 1001.

    Re: Math Quotes

    Byron

    When Newton saw an apple fall, he found ...
    A mode of proving that the earth turnd round
    In a most natural whirl, called gravitation;
    And thus is the sole mortal who could grapple
    Since Adam, with a fall or with an apple.

    Davis, Philip J.
    One of the endlessly alluring aspects of mathematics
    is that its thorniest paradoxes have a way of blooming
    into beautiful theories.

    Number, Scientific American, 211, (Sept. 1964), 51 - 59.

    Dehn, Max

    Mathematics is the only instructional material
    that can be presented in an entirely undogmatic way.

    In The Mathematical Intelligencer, v. 5, no. 2, 1983.

    Re: Math Quotes


    Descartes, Renï
    (1596-1650)

    Each problem that I solved became a rule which
    served afterwards to solve other problems.

    Re: Math Quotes

    Descartes, Renï
    (1596-1650)

    I concluded that I might take as a general rule the principle
    that all things which we very clearly and obviously conceive are true:
    only observing, however,
    that there is some difficulty in rightly determining
    the objects which we distinctly conceive.

    Discours de la Mïhode. 1637.
