### Famous quotes containing the word mathematics:

“Why does man freeze to death trying to reach the North Pole? Why does man drive himself to suffer the steam and heat of the Amazon? Why does he stagger his mind with the *mathematics* of the sky? Once the question mark has arisen in the human brain the answer must be found, if it takes a hundred years. A thousand years.”

—Walter Reisch (1903–1963)

“I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study *mathematics* and philosophy.”

—John Adams (1735–1826)

“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)
