### Famous quotes containing the words mathematics and/or teach:

“*Mathematics* alone make us feel the limits of our intelligence. For we can always suppose in the case of an experiment that it is inexplicable because we don’t happen to have all the data. In *mathematics* we have all the data ... and yet we don’t understand. We always come back to the contemplation of our human wretchedness. What force is in relation to our will, the impenetrable opacity of *mathematics* is in relation to our intelligence.”

—Simone Weil (1909–1943)

“For the mother who has opted to stay home, the question remains: Having perfected her role as a caretaker, can she abdicate control to less practiced individuals? Having put all her identity eggs in one basket, can she hand over the basket freely? Having put aside her own ambitions, can she resist imposing them on her children? And having set one example, can she *teach* another?”

—Melinda M. Marshall (20th century)
