“Mathematics is the cheapest science. Unlike physics or chemistry, it does not require any expensive equipment. All one needs for mathematics is a pencil and paper.”
Polya George

“If you can't solve a problem, then there is an easier problem you can solve: find it.”
George Polya, Mathematical Discovery on Understanding, Learning, and Teaching Problem Solving, Volume I

“The first rule of style is to have something to say. The second rule of style is to control yourself when, by chance, you have two things to say; say first one, then the other, not both at the same time.”
George Pólya, How to Solve It: A New Aspect of Mathematical Method
