“Film is one of the three universal languages, the other two: mathematics and music”

Frank Capra

“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.”

Albert Einstein

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

“The liver, that great maroon snail: No wave of emotion sweeps it. Neither music nor mathematics gives it pause in its appointed tasks.”

Dr. Richard Selzer

“May not music be described as the mathematics of the sense, mathematics as music of the reason? The musician feels mathematics, the mathematician thinks music: music the dream, mathematics the working life.”

James Joseph Sylvester

“Mathematics is the music of reason.”

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