Paul Erdős
“[When asked why are numbers beautiful?]

It’s like asking why is Ludwig van Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony beautiful. If you don't see why, someone can't tell you. I know numbers are beautiful. If they aren't beautiful, nothing is.”
Paul Erdős

Albert Einstein
“Since the mathematicians have invaded the theory of relativity I do not understand it myself any more.”
Albert Einstein
