Mathematics Quotes

Did you know that crime is being fought using mathematics as one of the tools? Well, you literally need math everywhere! We should probably say that mathematics has been used for studying all kinds of matter. For example, investigative math is being used by police officers in traffic accidents by using measurements and angles to calculate speed and distance traveled. In the same way, investigators need to be familiar with weights and measures to know the amount of drugs seized and to determine the severity of the offense.

Mathematics also has some significant intellectual values. It increases the mental alertness of a person and strengthens his reasoning ability. It also helps a person increase his accuracy and makes him more attentive. According to surveys, 4 out of 10 people in the US hate ‘Math’, as they call it. Probably because of the complexity involved in solving equations. It would be interesting to know that the world's most favorite search engine, 'Google', got its name from a mathematical word 'googol', which is equivalent to 10 raised to the power of 100. Interesting isn’t it? So, don’t stop reading! Go on to the famous offense quotes and sayings!

Nikola Tesla

Today's scientists have substituted mathematics for experiments, and they wander off through equation after equation, and eventually build a structure which has no relation to reality.

Bertrand Russell

Mathematics takes us into the region of absolute necessity, to which not only the actual word, but every possible word, must conform.

John Adams

I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy.

Mel Brooks

A lot of music is mathematics. It's balance.

Camille Paglia

Modern bodybuilding is ritual, religion, sport, art, and science, awash in Western chemistry and mathematics. Defying nature, it surpasses it.

Tom Stoppard

I am not a mathematician, but I was aware that for centuries, mathematics was considered the queen of the sciences because it claimed certainty. It was grounded on some fundamental certainties - axioms - that led to others.

Christopher Columbus

For the execution of the voyage to the Indies, I did not make use of intelligence, mathematics or maps.

Brad Pitt

I find all of my performances come down to mathematics in a sense - how do you approach the problem of this character? Sometimes I crack that problem, sometimes I don't.

Bertrand Russell

Mathematics may be defined as the subject in which we never know what we are talking about, nor whether what we are saying is true.

Bertrand Russell

The true spirit of delight, the exaltation, the sense of being more than Man, which is the touchstone of the highest excellence, is to be found in mathematics as surely as poetry.

Francis Bacon

If a man's wit be wandering, let him study the mathematics.

While physics and mathematics may tell us how the universe began, they are not much use in predicting human behavior because there are far too many equations to solve. I'm no better than anyone else at understanding what makes people tick, particularly women.

Carl Sandburg

I stayed away from mathematics not so much because I knew it would be hard work as because of the amount of time I knew it would take, hours spent in a field where I was not a natural.

Richard M. Nixon

We do not learn by inference and deduction and the application of mathematics to philosophy, but by direct intercourse and sympathy.

Bertrand Russell

I like mathematics because it is not human and has nothing particular to do with this planet or with the whole accidental universe - because, like Spinoza's God, it won't love us in return.

Albert Einstein

As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain, and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality.

H. L. Mencken

It is now quite lawful for a Catholic woman to avoid pregnancy by a resort to mathematics, though she is still forbidden to resort to physics or chemistry.

Albert Einstein

Do not worry about your difficulties in Mathematics. I can assure you mine are still greater.

It is generally recognised that women are better than men at languages, personal relations and multi-tasking, but less good at map-reading and spatial awareness. It is therefore not unreasonable to suppose that women might be less good at mathematics and physics.

Noam Chomsky

No matter what engineering field you're in, you learn the same basic science and mathematics. And then maybe you learn a little bit about how to apply it.

Stephen Hawking

In the past, there was active discrimination against women in science. That has now gone, and although there are residual effects, these are not enough to account for the small numbers of women, particularly in mathematics and physics.

Albert Einstein

Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas.

In terms of mathematics textbooks, why can't you have the scale of a national market? Right now, we have a Texas textbook that's different from a California textbook that's different from a Massachusetts textbook. That's very expensive.

Alcohol and calculus don’t mix. Never drink and derive.
