Quotations Quotations The essence

 The essence of mathematics is not
to make simple things complicated
           but to make
    complicated things simple.

Stanley Gudder, Author
There can be no mystery in a result
 you have discovered for yourself.

W.W. Sawyer, Mathematician
There is nothing so far removed from
  us to be beyond our reach or so
 hidden that we cannot discover it.    Rene Descartes
I am indeed amazed when I consider
    how weak my mind is and how
           prone to error.

It is not enough to have a good mind;
the main thing is to use it well.

I think; therefore I am.
                             Rene Descartes
Mathematics is the queen
    of sciences and
  number theory is the
 queen of mathematics.

Kark Fredrich Gauss (1777 – 1855),
German Mathematician                 1803
 Many times a day I realize how my outer and
inner life is built upon the labours of my fellow
 man, both living and dead, and how earnestly
 I must exert myself in order to give in return
   as much as I have received and am still

                      Albert Einstein (1879 – 1955), Physicist
The universe stands continually open to our gaze,
but it cannot be understood unless one first learns
  to comprehend the language and interpret the
          characters in which it is written.
                        Press space bar or right arrow to advance

 It is written in the language of mathematics, and
    its characters are triangles, circles, and other
   geometric figures, without which it is humanly
              impossible to understand
                   a single word of it;

              without these, one is wandering
              about in a dark labyrinth (maze).

Galileo Galilei (1564 – 1642), Italian Physicist and Astronomer
