    Mathematics Quotes

    Quotations about Mathematics

    • If scientific reasoning were limited to the logical processes of arithmetic, we should not get very far in our understanding of the physical world. One might as well attempt to grasp the game of poker entirely by the use of the mathematics of probability.
    • We used to think that if we knew one, we knew two, because one and one are two. We are finding that we must learn a great deal more about 'and'.
      The Harvest of a Quiet Eye (A. L. Mackay), 1977, by Sir Arthur Eddington
    • Proof is the idol before whom the pure mathematician tortures himself.
      The Nature of the Physical World, by Sir Arthur Eddington
    • The mathematics is not there till we put it there.
      The Philosophy of Physical Science, by Sir Arthur Eddington
    • Do not worry about your difficulties in Mathematics. I can assure you mine are still greater.
    • As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain; and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality.
      "Geometry and Experience", January 27, 1921, by Albert Einstein
    • Mathematics is the queen of the sciences.
      from Sartorius von Waltershausen, "Gauss zum Gedachtniss" [1856], by Carl Friedrich Gauss
    • I have hardly ever known a mathematician who was capable of reasoning.
      The Republic, by Plato
    • Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty - a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture.
    • Mathematics may be defined as the subject in which we never know what we are talking about, nor whether what we are saying is true.
      Mysticism and Logic (1917) ch. 4, by Bertrand Russell
