## Infinity

**Infinity** (symbol: ∞) refers to something *without any limit*, and is a concept relevant in a number of fields, predominantly mathematics and physics. The English word *infinity* derives from Latin *infinitas*, which can be translated as "unboundedness", itself derived from the Greek word *apeiros*, meaning "endless".

### Famous quotes containing the word infinity:

“As we begin to comprehend that the earth itself is a kind of manned spaceship hurtling through the *infinity* of space—it will seem increasingly absurd that we have not better organized the life of the human family.”

—Hubert H. Humphrey (1911–1978)

“The poetic notion of *infinity* is far greater than that which is sponsored by any creed.”

—Joseph Brodsky (b. 1940)

“We must not suppose that, because a man is a rational animal, he will, therefore, always act rationally; or, because he has such or such a predominant passion, that he will act invariably and consequentially in pursuit of it. No, we are complicated machines; and though we have one main spring that gives motion to the whole, we have an *infinity* of little wheels, which, in their turns, retard, precipitate, and sometime stop that motion.”

—Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)
