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)
