Quote of the Day
Everything one invents is true, you may be perfectly sure of that. Poetry is as precise as geometry.
There is geometry in the humming of the strings, there is music in the spacing of the spheres.
Poetry is as precise a thing as geometry.
All one's inventions are true, you can be sure of that. Poetry is as exact a science as geometry.
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
People were going to geometry class and I was swimming through vats of chili on 'Even Stevens.' It was like a dream!
I was very slow in maths, geometry I actually enjoyed.
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 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.
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.
There is still a difference between something and nothing, but it is purely geometrical and there is nothing behind the geometry.
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.
I am coming more and more to the conviction that the necessity of our geometry cannot be demonstrated, at least neither by, nor for, the human intellect.
Carl Friedrich Gauss
The two elements the traveler first captures in the big city are extra human architecture and furious rhythm. Geometry and anguish.
Federico Garcia Lorca
Life isn't about algebra and geometry. Learning by making mistakes and not duplicating them is what life is about.
A geometry implies the heterogeneity of locus, namely that there is a locus of the Other. Regarding this locus of the Other, of one sex as Other, as absolute Other, what does the most recent development in topology allow us to posit?
Music is the arithmetic of sounds as optics is the geometry of light.
We learned to put discipline in the haircuts by using actual geometry, actual architectural shapes and bone structure. The cut had to be perfect and layered beautifully, so that when a woman shook it, it just fell back in.
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.
It has adopted the geometry most advantageous to the species or, in other words, the most convenient.
You can't criticize geometry. It's never wrong.
I call it sacred geometry. When everything's just right and it feels really balanced, so that when it unfolds to the next part, you feel totally familiar and at ease within the song.
I've always been passionate about geometry and the study of three-dimensional forms.
I find purer philosophy in a Poem than in a Conclusion of Geometry, a chemical analysis, or a physical law.
I'd been doing projects outdoors for the public. I made pigeons eat geometry by putting bread out in rhomboids and triangles. I don't know if this activity made sense, but the work was available.
Now being in such grace and favor by reason I learned him some points of geometry and understanding of the art of mathematics with other things, I pleased him so that what I said he would not contrary.
I think the universe is pure geometry - basically, a beautiful shape twisting around and dancing over space-time.
Antony Garrett Lisi
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 power of mathematics is often to change one thing into another, to change geometry into language.
