Portrait of James Joseph Sylvester

James Joseph Sylvester


English mathematician

May not music be described as the mathematics of sense, mathematics as music of the reason? The musician feels mathematics, the mathematician thinks music -- music the dream, mathematics the working life.

TOPICS: music

Mathematics…Is as limitless as that space which it finds too narrow for its aspirations; its possibilities are infinite as the worlds which are forever crowding in and multiplying upon the astronomer’s gaze.
