Mathematics quotes and quotations

As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain; and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality.
Albert Einstein

Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas.
Max Wilhelm Dehn

Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty--a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture.
Bertrand Arthur William Russell

Definition of a Statistician: A man who believes figures don't lie, but admits than under analysis some of them won't stand up either.
Evan Esar

A mathematician is a device for turning coffee into theorems.
Paul Erdos

Anyone who considers arithmetical methods of producing random digits is, of course, in a state of sin.
John Von Neumann

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

Mathematics may be defined as the subject in which we never know what we are talking about, nor whether what we are saying is true.
Bertrand Russell

Mathematics is written for mathematicians.
Nicolaus Copernicus

Revolutions never occur in mathematics.
Michael Crowe

Mathematics seems to endow one with something like a new sense.
Charles R. Darwin

One of the endlessly alluring aspects of mathematics is that its thorniest paradoxes have a way of blooming into beautiful theories.
Philip J. Davis

Mathematics is the only instructional material that can be presented in an entirely undogmatic way.
Max Wilhelm Dehn

Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty - a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture.
Bertrand Russell

Do not worry about your difficulties in mathematics, I assure you that mine are greater.
Max Wilhelm Dehn

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

Proof is the idol before whom the pure mathematician tortures himself.
Sir Arthur Eddington

How can it be that mathematics, being after all a product of human thought independent of experience, is so admirably adapted to the objects of reality?
Max Wilhelm Dehn

Mathematics is the queen of the sciences.
Carl Friedrich Gauss

The mathematics is not there till we put it there.
Sir Arthur Eddington

I advise my students to listen carefully the moment they decide to take no more mathematics courses. They might be able to hear the sound of closing doors. Everybody a mathematician?
James Caballero

As for everything else, so for a mathematical theory: beauty can be perceived but not explained.
Arthur Cayley

Between the penis and the mathematical one . . . there exists nothing. Nothing! It is a vacuum.
Louis-Ferdinand Celine

To isolate mathematics from the practical demands of the sciences is to invite the sterility of a cow shut away from the bulls.
Pafnuty Lvovich Chebyshev

Like the crest of a peacock so is mathematics at the head of all knowledge.

It is the perennial youthfulness of mathematics itself which marks it off with a disconcerting immortality from the other sciences.
Roger Bacon

The Handmaiden of the Sciences.
Eric Temple Bell

The mathematical sciences particularly exhibit order, symmetry, and limitation; and these are the greatest forms of the beautiful.

For the things of this world cannot be made known without a knowledge of mathematics.
Roger Bacon

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

If scientific reasoning were limited to the logical processes of arithmetic, we should not get very far in our understanding of the physical world. One might as well attempt to grasp the game of poker entirely by the use of the mathematics of probability.
Vannevar Bush

As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain, and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality.
Max Wilhelm Dehn

It is the merest truism, evident at once to unsophisticated observation, that mathematics is a human invention.
P.W. Bridgman

With me everything turns into mathematics.
Max Wilhelm Dehn

I went off to college planning to major in math or philosophy-- of course, both those ideas are really the same idea.
Frank Wilczek

In mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Johann von Neumann
