The hardest arithmetic to master is that which enables us to count our blessings.
In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything, and two minus one equals nothing.
Arithmetic is where the answer is right and everything is nice and you can look out of the window and see the blue sky - or the answer is wrong and you have to start over and try again and see how it comes out this time.
He who refuses to do arithmetic is doomed to talk nonsense.
God does arithmetic.
Carl Friedrich Gauss
This is a tricky domain because, unlike simple arithmetic, to solve a calculus problem - and in particular to perform integration - you have to be smart about which integration technique should be used: integration by partial fractions, integration by parts, and so on.
Crystals grew inside rock like arithmetic flowers. They lengthened and spread, added plane to plane in an awed and perfect obedience to an absolute geometry that even stones - maybe only the stones - understood.
When I was at school, I was terrible at algebra and arithmetic, but I was always the best at English and literature. And acting, of course.
Music is the arithmetic of sounds as optics is the geometry of light.
The problem of distinguishing prime numbers from composite numbers and of resolving the latter into their prime factors is known to be one of the most important and useful in arithmetic.
Carl Friedrich Gauss
What would life be without arithmetic, but a scene of horrors?
The analysis of variance is not a mathematical theorem, but rather a convenient method of arranging the arithmetic.
Economics is half psychology and half Grade Three arithmetic, and the U.S. does not now have either half right.
I refer, of course, to the debts our nation has amassed for itself over decades of indulgence. It is the new Red Menace, this time consisting of ink. We can debate its origins endlessly and search for villains on ideological grounds, but the reality is pure arithmetic.

The numbers may be said to rule the whole world of quantity, and the four rules of arithmetic may be regarded as the complete equipment of the mathematician.
James C. Maxwell
The desire to economize time and mental effort in arithmetical computations, and to eliminate human liability to error is probably as old as the science of arithmetic itself.
If scientific reasoning were limited to the logical processes of arithmetic, we should not get very far in our understanding of the physical world. One might as well attempt to grasp the game of poker entirely by the use of the mathematics of probability.
Arithmetic! Algebra! Geometry! Grandiose trinity! Luminous triangle! Whoever has not known you is without sense!
Comte de Lautreamont
