{Replying to G. H. Hardy's suggestion that the number of a taxi (1729) was 'dull', showing off his spontaneous mathematical genius}No, it is a very interesting number; it is the smallest number expressible as a sum of two cubes in two different ways, the two ways being 13 + 123 and 93 + 103. - Srinivasa Ramanujan
As for everything else, so for mathematical theory: beauty can be perceived but not explained.
Archimedes will be remembered when Aeschylus is forgotten, because languages die and mathematical ideas do not. 'Immortality' may be a silly word, but probably a mathematician has the best chance of whatever it may mean. - G. H. Hardy
The fact that you are even here, alive, on this planet is a mathematical miracle, and you should not spend the time that you have being busy being miserable. - Philip DeFranco
The ‘Muse’ is not an artistic mystery, but a mathematical equation. The gift are those ideas you think of as you drift to sleep. The giver is that one you think of when you first awake. - Roman Payne
We don't know that we don't own or owe Anything (In mathematical terms we are sifar), so keep walking as long as your legs are moving towards the infinite. Your own Ego is the only obstacle in this journey, earlier you get rid of it sooner will you find the infinite peace. - AnkitMishra
I'm very well acquainted too with matters mathematical, I understand equations, both the simple and quadratical, About binomial theorem I'm teeming with a lot of news-- With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse.
Never forget you are the successful product of a harsh universe; the simple fact that you exist, whence trillions of other organisms do not, is a mathematical miracle. - Matt Parker
Poverty is a mathematical proof of the fact that mankind is a big failure! - Mehmet Murat ildan
The formulation of the problem is often more essential than its solution, which may be merely a matter of mathematical or experimental skill. - Albert Einstein
If there is anything that can bind the mind of man to this dreary exile of our earthly home and can reconcile us with our fate so that one can enjoy living,—then it is verily the enjoyment of the mathematical sciences and astronomy. - Johannes Kepler
Mathematical Knowledge adds a manly Vigour to the Mind, frees it from Prejudice, Credulity, and Superstition. - John Arbuthnot
Like works of literature, mathematical ideas help expand our circle of empathy, liberating us from the tyranny of a single, parochial point of view. - Daniel Tammet Thinking in Numbers How Maths Illuminates Our Lives
He possesses the minimum sensibility necessary for his intelligence not to be merely mathematical, the minimum a human being needs so that it can be proven with a thermometer that he's not dead. - Álvaro de Campos
God does not care about our mathematical difficulties. He integrates empirically. - Albert Einstein
A philosopher is a mathematician, who might not be good at solving mathematical problems but knows 'which one' to solve and 'why' to solve it... - Victor Ghoshe
Eternity is said not to be an extension of time but an absence of time, and sometimes it seemed to me that her abandonment touched that strange mathematical point of endlessness, a point with no width, occupying no space. - Graham Greene
The secret to my success is actually simple: I failed so many times that succeeding eventually became a mathematical certainty. - Max Hawthorne
Physics is mathematical not because we know so much about the physical world, but because we know so little; it is only its mathematical properties that we can discover. - Bertrand Russell
Elegance; it lacks the intellect -he is not a dancer who dances to the beat of love - on the other hand, the heart, can not solve mathematical problems. - Kristian Goldmund Aumann
A technique succeeds in mathematical physics, not by a clever trick, or a happy accident, but because it expresses some aspect of a physical truth.
Nature already uses the language of mathematics, so why not work with the environment instead of against it. We need to start mimicking the mathematical logic that occurs in the landscape, identify existing systems, and out of those concepts create new ones. - Yafreisy Carrero
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
As for everything else, so for a mathematical theory: beauty can be perceived but not explained. - Arthur Cayley
It turned out keeping reality bound by mathematical laws was a useful hack preventing the Devil from existing. - Scott Alexander
I think that modern physics has definitely decided in favor of . In fact the smallest units of matter are not physical objects in the ordinary sense; they are forms, ideas which can be expressed unambiguously only in mathematical language. Werner Heisenberg - Plato
The mathematical giant [Gauss], who from his lofty heights embraces in one view the stars and the abysses - Farkas Bolyai
You know, When does a girl asks you for a selfie ?When she got the solution to the biggest mathematical equation of this Society. - Balakoteswara Panchakshari
College is the grinding machine of the Mathematical Establishment, a conveyor belt that takes individuals from one cookie cutter to another so that the product comes within tight control limits out of the assembly line. - Bill Gaede
Rejecting God's truth b/c of mankind's hypocrisy is like rejecting mathematical truth b/c mankind's incompetence. - Orrin Woodward
