" The moving power of mathematical invention is not reasoning but imagination. "

— Augustus De Morgan

"Nothing is more important than to see the sources of invention which, in my opinion, are more interesting than the inventions themselves."

Gottfried von Leibniz (1646-1716)

"Young man, in mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them."

John von Neumann (1903-1957).

"A man must love a thing very much if he not only practices it without any hope of fame or money, but even practices it without any hope of doing it well."

G. K. Chesterton (1874-1936)

"You keep on learning and learning, and pretty soon you learn something no one has learned before."

Richard Feynman (1918-1988)

"My work always tried to unite the truth with the beautiful, but when I had to choose one or the other, I usually chose the beautiful."

H. Weyl (1885-1955)

"The truth lies."

A. Solomon (1963-)

"Progress in Mathematics can be measured by how much of Mathematics has been made trivial."

T. Tao (1975-)

"It seems to me now that Mathematics is capable of an artistic excellence as great as that of any music, perhaps greater; not because the pleasure it gives (although very pure) is comparable, either in intensity or in the number of people who feel it, to that of music, but because it gives in absolute perfection that combination, characteristic of great art, of godlike freedom, with the sense of inevitable destiny; because, in fact, it constructs an ideal world where everything is perfect but true."

-- Bertrand Russell (1872-1970)

"I love to do research, I want to do research, I have to do research, and I hate to sit down and begin to do research---I always try to put it off just as long as I can. ....Isn't there something I can (must?) do first? Shouldn't I sharpen my pencils perhaps?"

--Paul Halmos (1916 -- 2006)
