    Re: Math Quotes

    Goethe

    "It has been said that figures rule the world. Maybe.
    But I am sure that figures show us whether it is
    being ruled well or badly."


    In J. P. Eckermann,
    Conversations with Goethe.

    Re: Math Quotes

    Hardy, Godfrey H. (1877 - 1947)

    Pure mathematics is on the whole distinctly more useful
    than applied. For what is useful above all is technique,
    and mathematical technique is taught mainly through
    pure mathematics.

    Young Men should prove theorems, old men should write books.

    and Writer. Interview with Donald J. Albers, The College Mathematics Journal,
    vol. 25, No. 1, January 1994.

    Hardy, Godfrey H.
    (1877 - 1947)


    A science is said to be useful of its development tends to
    accentuate the existing inequalities in the distribution of
    wealth, or more directly promotes the destruction of
    human life.


    A Mathematician's Apology, London,
    Cambridge University Press, 1941.

    I believe that mathematical reality lies outside us,
    that our function is to discover or observe it,
    and that the theorems which we prove,
    and which we describe grandiloquently
    as our "creations,"
    are simply the notes of
    our observations.

    Re: Math Quotes

    Mayer, Maria Goeppert
    (1906 -1972)


    Mathematics began to seem too much like puzzle solving.
    Physics is puzzle solving, too,
    but of puzzles created by nature,
    not by the mind of man.


    J. Dash, Maria Goeppert-Mayer,
    A Life of One's Own.

    Mencken, H. L.
    (1880 - 1956)


    It is now quite lawful for a Catholic woman to avoid pregnancy
    by a resort to mathematics, though she is still forbidden to
    resort to physics and chemistry.


    Notebooks, "Minority Report".

    To explain all nature is too difficult a task for any one man
    or even for any one age. `Tis much better to do a little with certainty,
    and leave the rest for others hat come after you,
    than to explain all things.


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

    Re: Math Quotes

    Thomas R. Nicely

    Usually mathematicians have to shoot somebody to get this much publicity.

    [On the attention he received after finding the flaw in Intel's Pentium chip in 1994]
    Cincinnati Enquirer, December 18, 1994, Section A, page 19.
