### Famous quotes containing the words mathematics, princeton and/or companion:

“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)

“The men—the undergraduates of Yale and *Princeton* are cleaner, healthier, better-looking, better dressed, wealthier and more attractive than any undergraduate body in the country.”

—F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)

“I have found it a singular luxury to talk across the pond to a *companion* on the opposite side.”

—Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
