    Math Quotes

    Richard P. Feynman

    Profession: Physicist. Born 1918, Brooklyn, New York.
    Died 1988, Los Angeles, California.

    "We could, of course, use any notation we want; do not laugh at notations; invent them, they are powerful. In fact, mathematics is, to a large extent, invention of better notations."
    (Source: The Feynman Lectures on Physics, Addison-Wesley, Chapter 17)

    Re: Math Quotes

    Gustave Flaubert

    Profession: author. Born 1821. Died 1880.

    Since you are now studying geometry and trigonometry, I will give you a problem. A ship sails the ocean. It left Boston with a cargo of wool. It grosses 200 tons. It is bound for Le Havre. The main mast is broken, the cabin boy is on deck, there are 12 passengers aboard, the wind is blowing east-north-east, the clock points to a quarter past three in the afternoon. It is the month of May. How old is the captain?

    Re: Math Quotes

    Galileo Galilei

    Profession: scientist. Born 1564, Pisa, Italy. Died 1642, Florence, Italy.

    In questions of science the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of an individual.

    Re: Math Quotes

    Evariste Galois

    Profession: mathematician. Born 1811, Paris, France. Died 1832, Paris, France.

    Unfortunately what is little recognized is that the most worthwhile scientific books are those in which the author clearly indicates what he does not know; for an author most hurts his readers by concealing difficulties.

    Mathematics ... condescends to render service to astronomy and other natural sciences, but under all circumstances the first place is her due.

    *******

    Mathematics is the queen of the sciences, and number theory the queen of mathematics.

    Re: Math Quotes

    Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas.

    x-=+x-=+x

    Mathematics are well and good but nature keeps dragging us around by the nose.

    ~Albert Einstein

    Re: Math Quotes

    Mathematics is as much an aspect of culture as it is a collection of algorithms.

    For me it remains an open question whether [this work]
    pertains to the realm of mathematics or to that of art.

    Re: Math Quotes

    Aristotle

    Profession: philosopher, scientist. Born 384 bce. Died 322 bce.

    Number proceeds from unity.


    The mathematical sciences particularly exhibit order, symmetry, and limitation; and these are the greatest forms of the beautiful.


    The primary question was not what do we know, but how do we know it.
