I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy.
John Adams

Mathematics is a game played according to certain simple rules with meaningless marks on paper.
David Hilbert

Do not worry about your difficulties in Mathematics. I can assure you mine are still greater.
Albert Einstein

Today's scientists have substituted mathematics for experiments, and they wander off through equation after equation, and eventually build a structure which has no relation to reality.
Nikola Tesla

The object of pure physics is the unfolding of the laws of the intelligible world; the object of pure mathematics that of unfolding the laws of human intelligence.
James Joseph Sylvester

For the execution of the voyage to the Indies, I did not make use of intelligence, mathematics or maps.
Christopher Columbus

Without mathematics, there's nothing you can do. Everything around you is mathematics. Everything around you is numbers.
Shakuntala Devi

Guided only by their feeling for symmetry, simplicity, and generality, and an indefinable sense of the fitness of things, creative mathematicians now, as in the past, are inspired by the art of mathematics rather than by any prospect of ultimate usefulness.
E. T. Bell

The most painful thing about mathematics is how far away you are from being able to use it after you have learned it.
James Newman

I had an excellent math and physics teacher in high school named T.C. Patel, and in the university, I had truly dedicated professors in both physics and mathematics who gave me a sound foundation with which to pursue graduate studies.
Venkatraman Ramakrishnan

Mathematics cannot handle physical quantities like density that literally go to infinity.
Gregory Benford

The science of operations, as derived from mathematics more especially, is a science of itself, and has its own abstract truth and value.
Ada Lovelace

To those who ask what the infinitely small quantity in mathematics is, we answer that it is actually zero. Hence there are not so many mysteries hidden in this concept as they are usually believed to be.
Leonhard Euler

In mathematics the art of proposing a question must be held of higher value than solving it.
Georg Cantor

It may be true, that men, who are mere mathematicians, have certain specific shortcomings, but that is not the fault of mathematics, for it is equally true of every other exclusive occupation.
Carl Friedrich Gauss

I can observe the game theory is applied very much in economics. Generally, it would be wise to get into the mathematics as much as seems reasonable because the economists who use more mathematics are somehow more respected than those who use less. That's the trend.
John Forbes Nash, Jr.
