    Re: Math Quotes

    Bertrand Russell

    Profession: mathematician, philosopher.




    It can be shown
    that a mathematical web of some kind
    can be woven
    about any universe
    containing several objects.

    Re: Math Quotes

    George Santayana
    Profession: writer.


    If all art aspires to the condition of music,
    all the sciences aspire to the condition of mathematics.

    ***

    It is a pleasant surprise to [the mathematician]
    and an added problem
    if he finds that the arts can use his calculations,
    or that the senses can verify them,
    much as if a composer found that sailors
    could heave better when singing his songs.

    Re: Math Quotes

    Erwin Schrödinger
    Profession: scientist.


    The idea of the continuum seems simple to us.
    We have somehow lost sight of the difficulties it implies ...
    We are told such a number as the square root of 2
    worried Pythagoras and his school almost to exhaustion.

    Being used to such queer numbers from early childhood,
    we must be careful not to form a low idea
    of the mathematical intuition of these ancient sages;

    their worry was highly credible.

    Professor Dana Scott
    Profession: mathematician.


    It’s not pure intellectual power that counts,
    it’s commitment.

    (Source: quoted by Jon Barwise)

    Re: Math Quotes

    George F. Simmons

    Mathematical rigor is like clothing;
    in its style
    it ought to suit the occasion,
    and
    it diminishes comfort
    and
    restrains freedom of movement
    if it is either
    too lose
    or
    too tight.

    Re: Math Quotes

    Henry J.S. Smith

    Arithmetic is one of the oldest branches, perhaps the very oldest branch, of human knowledge; and yet some of its most abstruse secrets lie close to its tritest truths.

    ***

    Poor teaching leads to the inevitable idea that the subject (mathematics) is only adapted to peculiar minds, when it is the one universal science and the one whose ... ground rules are taught us almost in infancy and reappear in the motions of the universe.

    Re: Math Quotes

    Leonardo da Vinci
    Profession: artist, inventor.
    Born 1452. Died 1519.


    Mechanics
    is the
    paradise
    of the
    mathematical sciences,
    because
    by means of it
    one comes to the
    fruits
    of mathematics.

    Paul Dirac

    Profession: mathematician.
    Born 1902, Bristol, England. Died 1984,
    Tallahassee, Florida.


    Mathematics is the tool specially suited for dealing with
    abstract concepts of any kind
    and
    there is no limit
    to its power
    in this field.

    Albert Einstein
    Profession: physicist.
    Born 1879, Ulm, Germany. Died 1955,
    Princeton, New Jersey.



    The creative principle resides in mathematics.
    In a certain sense, therefore, I hold it true that
    pure thought
    can grasp reality,
    as the ancients dreamed.

    Re: Math Quotes

    Samuel Taylor Coleridge

    Profession: poet.


    From the time of Kepler to that of Newton,
    and from Newton to Hartley,
    not only all things in external nature,
    but the subtlest mysteries of life and organization,
    and even of the intellect
    and moral being,
    were conjured within the circle of mathematical formulae.
