An educated mind is, as it were, composed of all the minds of preceding ages.

TOPICS: education, learning

This therefore is Mathematics:
    She reminds you of the invisible forms of the soul;
    She gives life to her own discoveries;
    She awakens the mind and purifies the intellect;
    She brings light to our intrinsic ideas;
    She abolishes oblivion and ignorance which are ours by birth.

TOPICS: learning, education, philosophy, psychology

Besides language and music, [mathematics] is one of the primary manifestations of the free creative powers of the human mind, and it is the universal organ for world-understanding through theoretical construction. Mathematics must therefore remain an essential element of the knowledge and abilities which we have to teach, of the culture we have to transmit, to the next generation.
