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 actual infinite arises in three contexts: first when it is realized in the most complete form, in a fully independent otherworldly being, in Deo, where I call it the Absolute Infinite or simply Absolute; second when it occurs in the contingent, created world; third when the mind grasps it in abstracto as a mathematical magnitude, number or order type. Georg Cantor

We used to think that if we knew one, we knew two, because one and one are two. We are finding that we must learn a great deal more about 'and'. Sir Arthur Eddington

I have hardly ever known a mathematician who was capable of reasoning. Plato

What I assert and believe to have demonstrated in this and earlier works is that following the finite there is a transfinite (which one could also call the supra-finite), that is an unbounded ascending lader of definite modes, which by their nature are not finite but infinite, but which just like the finite can be determined by well-defined and distinguishable numbers. Georg Cantor

Let us grant that the pursuit of mathematics is a divine madness of the human spirit, a refuge from the goading urgency of contingent happenings. Alfred North Whitehead

These will be computer related courses taught by departments in the College, not by computer science. So an example of that kind of course would be a digital music course or a certain mathematics course. Thomas Horton

There is an astonishing imagination, even in the science of mathematics... We repeat, there was far more imagination in the head of Archimedes than in that of Homer. Voltaire

Everyone knows what a curve is, until he has studied enough mathematics to become confused through the countless number of possible exceptions. Felix Klein
