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

Albert Einstein

“Yes, we have to divide up our time like that, between our politics and our equations. But to me our equations are far more important, for politics are only a matter of present concern. A mathematical equation stands forever.”

“Mathematics doesnâ€™t care about those beyond the numbers.”

Dejan Stojanovic

“Since the mathematicians have invaded the theory of relativity, I do not understand it myself anymore.”

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

“Few realize that the world of modern mathematics is rich with vivid images and provocative ideas.”

Ivars Peterson

“Histories make men wise; poets, witty; the mathematics, subtile; natural philosophy, deep; moral, grave; logic and rhetoric, able to contend.”

Francis Bacon Sr.
