“These estimates may well be enhanced by one from F. Klein (1849-1925), the leading German mathematician of the last quarter of the nineteenth century. 'Mathematics in general is fundamentally the science of self-evident things.' ... If mathematics is indeed the science of self-evident things, mathematicians are a phenomenally stupid lot to waste the tons of good paper they do in proving the fact.

The assumptions from which mathematics starts are simple; the rest is not.”
Eric Temple Bell, Mathematics: Queen and Servant of Science

Studying theory trains you in these areas.”
Michael Sipser, Introduction to the Theory of Computation
