You will
find quotations
related to mathematics just below and at the bottom of this page. Each
has inspired me to think of the mathematical experience in some new
way.

I advise my students to listen
carefully
the moment
they decide to take no more mathematics courses. They might
be
able to hear the sound of closing doors.**---****James**

**The
only way to learn mathematics is to do
mathematics. --- ****Paul

Archimedes will be remembered when
Aeschylus is
forgotten, because languages die and mathematical ideas do not. --- G.
H. Hardy

He is unworthy of the name of man who
is ignorant of
the fact that the diagonal of a square is incommensurable with its
side. --- Plato

The man ignorant of mathematics will
be increasingly
limited in his grasp of the main forces of civilization. --- John Kemeny

Mathematics as we know it and as it
has come to shape
modern science could never have come into being without some disregard
for the dangers of the infinite. --- David Bressoud

The miracle of the
appropriateness of the language of mathematics for the formulation of
the laws of physics is a wonderful gift which we neither understand nor
deserve. We should be grateful for it and hope that it will remain
valid in future research and that it will extend, for better or for
worse, to our pleasure even though perhaps also to our bafflement, to
wide branches of learning. --- Eugene Wigner,
The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Mathematics
