Quote of the Day
The power of mathematics is often to change one thing into another, to change geometry into language.
Marcus du Sautoy
There is geometry in the humming of the strings, there is music in the spacing of the spheres.
It is hard to convince a high-school student that he will encounter a lot of problems more difficult than those of algebra and geometry.
E. W. Howe
I think the universe is pure geometry - basically, a beautiful shape twisting around and dancing over space-time.
Antony Garrett Lisi
Projective geometry is all geometry.
Life isn't about algebra and geometry. Learning by making mistakes and not duplicating them is what life is about.
One geometry cannot be more true than another; it can only be more convenient. Geometry is not true, it is advantageous.
Robert M. Pirsig
Geometry is not true, it is advantageous.
I believe that all centers that appear in space - whether they originate in biology, in physical forces, in pure geometry, in color - are alike simply in that they all animate space. It is this animated space that has its functional effect upon the world, that determines the way things work, that governs the presence of harmony and life.
And since geometry is the right foundation of all painting, I have decided to teach its rudiments and principles to all youngsters eager for art.
The two elements the traveler first captures in the big city are extra human architecture and furious rhythm. Geometry and anguish.
Federico Garcia Lorca
All one's inventions are true, you can be sure of that. Poetry is as exact a science as geometry.
People were going to geometry class and I was swimming through vats of chili on 'Even Stevens.' It was like a dream!
Creating a body of mathematics is about intellectual labor, not some kind of transcendental revelation. There are plenty of important components of European fractal geometry that are missing from the African version.
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.
Not that the propositions of geometry are only approximately true, but that they remain absolutely true in regard to that Euclidean space which has been so long regarded as being the physical space of our experience.
There is no royal road to geometry.
You can't criticize geometry. It's never wrong.
Poetry is as precise a thing as geometry.
Music is the arithmetic of sounds as optics is the geometry of light.
If the chemistry is right between star and photographer and the geometry of the pictures pleases the star, often the two people end up with a long-term professional friendship during which they continue to work together and to produce highly personal images.
Arithmetic! Algebra! Geometry! Grandiose trinity! Luminous triangle! Whoever has not known you is without sense!
Comte de Lautreamont
In terms of individuals who actually inspired me, very few of the academic people that I had access to had that power over me. Maybe it's simply because I wasn't that committed to geometry.
A multitude of bees can tell the time of day, calculate the geometry of the sun's position, argue about the best location for the next swarm. Bees do a lot of close observing of other bees; maybe they know what follows stinging and do it anyway.
I've got a real sense of three-dimensional geometry. I can look at a flat piece of fabric and know that if I put a slit in it and make some fabric travel around a square, then when you lift it up it will drape in a certain way, and I can feel how that will happen.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
