Everything that was before in the sciences: hydraulics, aerometry, optics and other dark, doubtful and unreliable, mathematics made clear, true and obvious.
M.V. Lomonosov (1711-1765)
Every natural science contains as much truth as there is mathematics in it.
Immanuel Kant (1724-1804)
Much of mathematics does not remain in the memory, but when you understand it, then it is easy to recall the forgotten occasionally.
M.V. Ostrogradsky (1801-1861)
How can it be that mathematics, being after all the product of people's thinking, independent of experience, is so wonderfully adapted to the objects of reality?
Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
In nature, there is inherent in it a hidden harmony, reflected in our minds in the form of simple mathematical laws. This explains why natural phenomena can be predicted using a combination of observations and mathematical analysis.
Hermann Weil (1885 - 1955)
Mathematics is more than science, it is the language of science.
Niels Bohr (1885-1962)
A mathematician is one who can find analogies between statements. The best mathematician is who establishes analogies of evidence. The stronger may notice analogies of theories. But there are those who see analogies between analogies.
Stefan Banach (1892-1945)
Today, not only our rulers do not know mathematics, but also our philosophers - and moreover, our mathematicians do not know mathematics.
Robert Oppenheimer (1904-1967)
Have you not noticed that a mathematician is sophisticated in all the sciences in nature?
It would be good if the state itself demanded this knowledge and if people in top government positions were taught to do mathematics and, if necessary, to apply to it.
Plato (428/427 or 424/423 – 348/347 BCE, greek philosopher)
Mathematics reveals order, symmetry and certainty, and these are the most important kinds of beauty.
Aristotle (384–322 BCE, greek philosopher and a pupil of Plato)
