    Re: Math Quotes

    Scott Buchanan

    The structures with which mathematics deals
    are more like lace, the leaves of trees and the
    play of the light and shadow on a human face
    than they are like buildings and machines,
    the least of their representatives.

    Re: Math Quotes

    Lewis Carroll


    Profession: logician.
    Born 1832, Daresbury, England.
    Died 1898, Guilford, England.



    "It may well be doubted whether,
    in all the range of science,
    there is any field so fascinating
    to the explorer
    – so rich in hidden treasures –
    so fruitful in delightful surprises –
    as Pure Mathematics."

    Re: Math Quotes


    Gauss, Karl Friedrich (1777-1855)

    It is not knowledge, but the act of learning,
    not possession but the act of getting there,
    which grants the greatest enjoyment.
    When I have clarified and exhausted a subject,
    then I turn away from it,
    in order to go into darkness again;
    the never-satisfied man
    is so strange
    if he has completed a structure,
    then it is not in order to dwell in it peacefully,
    but in order to begin another.

    I imagine the world conqueror must feel thus,
    who, after one kingdom is scarcely conquered,
    stretches out his arms for others.

    Letter to Bolyai, 1808.

    Abel, Niels H. (1802 - 1829)

    He is like the fox, who effaces his tracks in the sand with his tail.

    The control of large numbers is possible, and like unto that of small numbers,
    if we subdivide them.

    Re: Math Quotes

    Shaw, J. B.


    The mathematician is fascinated with the marvelous beauty
    of the forms he constructs,
    and in their beauty he finds everlasting truth.

    Re: Math Quotes


    Rota, Gian-carlo

    We often hear that mathematics consists
    mainly of "proving theorems."
    Is a writer's job mainly
    that of "writing sentences?"

    In preface to P. Davis and R. Hersh
    The Mathematical Experience,
    Boston: Birkhïser, 1981

    Poe, Edgar Allen

    To speak algebraically, Mr. M. is execrable, but Mr. G. is (x + 1)- ecrable.

    Erwin Schrodinger

    'For a solitary animal egoism is a virtue that tends to preserve
    and improve the species:

    in any kind of community it becomes a destructive vice."
