Calculus Quotations

I was more interested in skating and the girls and traveling than I was in calculus.
Scott Hamilton

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.
Marvin Minsky

You can do anything if you set your mind to it. Look out for kids, help them dream and be inspired. We teach calculus in schools, but I believe the most important formula is courage plus dreams equals success.
Marlee Matlin

If one looks at the different problems of the integral calculus which arise naturally when one wishes to go deep into the different parts of physics, it is impossible not to be struck by the analogies existing.
Henri Poincare

Newton, of course, was the inventor of differential calculus so his place in the tale is quite special.
Kit Williams
