    Re: Math Quotes

    Eves, Howard W.

    An expert problem solver must be endowed with
    two incompatible qualities, a restless imagination
    and a patient pertinacity.


    In Mathematical Circles, Boston: Prindle, Weber and Schmidt, 1969.

    Re: Math Quotes

    Eves, Howard W.

    Mathematics may be likened to a large rock whose interior composition we wish to examine. The older mathematicians appear as persevering stone cutters slowly attempting to demolish the rock from the outside with hammer and chisel. The later mathematicians resemble expert miners who seek vulnerable veins, drill into these strategic places, and then blast the rock apart with well placed internal charges.

    Re: Math Quotes

    Feynman, Richard Philips
    (1918 - 1988)

    We have a habit in writing articles published in scientific journals
    to make the work as finished as possible,
    to cover up all the tracks, to not worry about the blind alleys or
    describe how you had the wrong idea first, and so on.
    So there isn't any place to publish, in a dignified manner,
    what you actually did in order to get to do the work.


    Nobel Lecture, 1966.

    Re: Math Quotes

    Frankland, W.B.

    Whereas at the outset geometry is reported
    to have concerned herself
    with the measurement of muddy land,
    she now handles celestial as well as terrestrial problems:
    she has extended her domain to the furthest bounds of space.

    Re: Math Quotes

    Frayn, Michael

    For hundreds of pages the closely-reasoned arguments unroll,
    axioms and theorems interlock. And what remains with us in the end?
    A general sense that the world can be expressed in closely-reasoned
    arguments, in interlocking axioms and theorems.




    Constructions. 1974.

    Re: Math Quotes

    Galbraith, John Kenneth

    There can be no question, however, that prolonged commitment
    to mathematical exercises in economics can be damaging.
    It leads to the atrophy of judgement and intuition...

    Re: Math Quotes

    Galilei, Galileo
    (1564 - 1642)


    [The universe] cannot be read until we have learnt
    the language and become familiar with the characters in which it is written.
    It is written in mathematical language, and the letters are triangles,
    circles and other geometrical figures,
    without which means it is humanly impossible to comprehend a single word.


    Opere Il Saggiatore p. 171.

    Re: Math Quotes

    Galilei, Galileo
    (1564 - 1642)


    And who can doubt that it will lead to the worst disorders when
    minds created free by God are compelled to submit slavishly to an outside will?
    When we are told to deny our senses and subject them to the whim of others?
    When people devoid of whatsoever competence are made judges over experts
    and are granted authority to treat them as they please?

    These are the novelties which are apt to bring about the ruin of commonwealths
    and the subversion of the state.


    [On the margin of his own copy of Dialogue on the Great World Systems].

    In J. R. Newman (ed.) The World of Mathematics, New York: Simon and Schuster, 1956, p. 733.

    Re: Math Quotes

    Gardner, Martin


    Biographical history,
    as taught in our public schools,
    is still largely a history of boneheads:
    ridiculous kings and queens,
    paranoid political leaders,
    compulsive voyagers,
    ignorant generals --
    the flotsam and jetsam
    of historical currents.

    The men who radically altered history,
    the great scientists and mathematicians,
    are seldom mentioned,
    if at all.


    In G. Simmons Calculus Gems,
    New York: McGraw Hill,
    1992.
