Thoughtful Math Quotes


Technical skill is mastery of complexity while creativity is mastery of simplicity. ~ Zeeman, E Christopher

Numbers are intellectual witnesses that belong only to mankind. ~Balzac, Honore

What is now proved was once only imagined. ~ Blake

Structures are the weapons of the mathematician. ~ Bourbaki

In an examination those who do not wish to know ask questions of those who cannot tell. ~ Raleigh, (Sir) Walter Alexander

"Can you do addition?" the White Queen asked. "What's one and one and one and one and one and one and one and one and one and one?" "I don't know," said Alice. "I lost count."
Through the Looking Glass. ~ Carroll, Lewis

The composer opens the cage door for arithmetic, the draftsman gives geometry its freedom. ~ Cocteau

Geometry enlightens the intellect and sets one's mind right. All of its proofs are very clear and orderly. It is hardly possible for errors to enter into geometrical reasoning, because it is well arranged and orderly. Thus, the mind that constantly applies itself to geometry is not likely to fall into error. In this convenient way, the person who knows geometry acquires intelligence. ~ Ibn Khaldun

One of the principal objects of theoretical research in my department of knowledge is to find the point of view from which the subject appears in its greatest simplicity. ~ Gibbs, Josiah Willard

He uses statistics as a drunken man uses lamp posts -- for support rather than illumination. ~ Lang, Andrew

A good calculator does not need artificial aids. ~ Lao Tze

Now I feel as if I should succeed in doing something in mathematics, although I cannot see why it is so very important... The knowledge doesn't make life any sweeter or happier, does it?
The Story of My Life. ~ Keller, Helen

What we know is not much. What we do not know is immense. ~ de Laplace, Pierre-Simon

I have often noticed that when people come to understand a mathematical proposition in some other way than that of the ordinary demonstration, they promptly say, "Oh, I see. That's how it must be." This is a sign that they explain it to themselves from within their own system. ~Lichtenberg, Georg Christoph

Nature is an infinite sphere of which the center is everywhere and the circumference nowhere. ~ Pascal, Blaise

Inspiration is needed in geometry, just as much as in poetry. ~ Pushkin, Aleksandr Sergeyevich
