Portrait of Charles Darwin

Charles Darwin

1809–1882

English biologist

Every new body of discovery is mathematical in form, because there is no other guidance we can have.

TOPICS: discovery, philosophy

Mathematics seems to endow one with something like a new sense.

A  mathematician is a blind man in a dark room looking for a black cat which isn’t there.

TOPICS: humor

I  suppose you are two fathoms deep in mathematics, and if you are, then God help you, for so am I, only with this difference, I stick fast in the mud at the bottom and there I shall remain.

TOPICS: learning, humor
