Elaine (caladhiel) "A mathematician is a device for turning coffee into theorems." ~ Paul Erdos


message 3: by Elaine (new)

Elaine (caladhiel) "Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty - a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture, without appeal to any part of our weaker nature, without the gorgeous trappings of painting and music, yet sublimely pure, and capable of a stern perfection such as only the greatest art can show." ~ Bertrand Russell, The Study of Mathematics
