    Re: Math Quotes

    Nightingale, Florence
    (1820-1910)


    [Of her:]
    Her statistics were more than a study, they were indeed her religion. For her Quetelet was the hero as scientist, and the presentation copy of his Physique sociale is annotated by her on every page. Florence Nightingale believed -- and in all the actions of her life acted upon that belief -- that the administrator could only be successful if he were guided by statistical knowledge. The legislator -- to say nothing of the politician -- too often failed for want of this knowledge. Nay, she went further; she held that the universe -- including human communities -- was evolving in accordance with a divine plan; that it was man's business to endeavor to understand this plan and guide his actions in sympathy with it. But to understand God's thoughts, she held we must study statistics, for these are the measure of His purpose. Thus the study of statistics was for her a religious duty.

    K. Pearson The Life, Letters and Labours for Francis Galton, vol. 2, 1924.

    Re: Math Quotes

    Oppenheimer, Julius Robert
    (1904 - 1967)


    Today, it is not only that our kings do not know mathematics,
    but our philosophers do not know mathematics and -- to go a step further --
    our mathematicians do not know mathematics.


    "The Tree of Knowledge" in Harper's, 217, 1958.

    Osgood, W. F.

    The calculus is the greatest aid we have to the application of physical truth
    in the broadest sense of the word.


    In N. Rose Mathematical Maxims and Minims, Raleigh NC:Rome Press Inc., 1988.

    Re: Math Quotes

    Pascal, Blaise
    (1623-1662)


    We are usually convinced more easily
    by reasons we have found
    ourselves than by those which
    have occurred to others.


    Pensees. 1670.

    We arrive at truth, not by reason only, but also by the heart.

    When the passions

    they are vices.

    Valïy, Paul
    (1871 - 1945)


    In the physical world, one cannot increase the size or quantity
    of anything without changing its quality. Similar figures exist only
    in pure geometry

    Re: Math Quotes

    Weyl, Hermann
    (1885 - 1955)

    Our federal income tax law defines the tax y to be paid in terms of the income x; it does so in a clumsy enough way by pasting several linear functions together, each valid in another interval or bracket of income. An archeologist who, five thousand years from now, shall unearth some of our income tax returns together with relics of engineering works and mathematical books, will probably date them a couple of centuries earlier, certainly before Galileo and Vieta.

    The Mathematical Way of Thinking, an address given at the Bicentennial Conference at the University of Pennsylvania, 1940.

    Without the concepts, methods and results found and developed by
    previous generations right down to Greek antiquity one cannot understand
    either the aims or achievements of mathematics in the last 50 years.


    [Said in 1950]
    The American Mathematical Monthly, v. 100. p. 93.
