### Famous quotes containing the word mathematics:

“It is a monstrous thing to force a child to learn Latin or Greek or *mathematics* on the ground that they are an indispensable gymnastic for the mental powers. It would be monstrous even if it were true.”

—George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

“The three main medieval points of view regarding universals are designated by historians as realism, conceptualism, and nominalism. Essentially these same three doctrines reappear in twentieth-century surveys of the philosophy of *mathematics* under the new names logicism, intuitionism, and formalism.”

—Willard Van Orman Quine (b. 1908)

“In *mathematics* he was greater

Than Tycho Brahe, or Erra Pater:

For he, by geometric scale,

Could take the size of pots of ale;

Resolve, by sines and tangents straight,

If bread and butter wanted weight;

And wisely tell what hour o’ th’ day

The clock doth strike, by algebra.”

—Samuel Butler (1612–1680)
