### Quotes from the category Mathematics:

- Do you think Arabs are dumb? They gave us our numbers. Try doing long division with Roman numerals.
*permalink**A Man Without a Country*(2005) - God does not care about our mathematical difficulties. He integrates empirically.
*permalink* - God used beautiful mathematics in creating the world.
*permalink*quoted by Heinz R. Pagels in

*The Cosmic Code: Quantum Physics As The Language Of Nature*(1982) - Greek architecture is the flowering of geometry.
*permalink* - It seems that if one is working from the point of view of getting beauty in one's equations, and if one has really a sound insight, one is on a sure line of progress.
*permalink*"The Evolution of the Physicist's Picture of Nature" in

*Scientific American*(May 1963) - It seems to be one of the fundamental features of nature that fundamental physical laws are described in terms of a mathematical theory of great beauty and power, needing quite a high standard of mathematics for one to understand it. You may wonder: Why is nature constructed along these lines? One can only answer that our present knowledge seems to show that nature is so constructed.

*Scientific American*(May 1963) - One could perhaps describe the situation by saying that God is a mathematician of a very high order, and He used very advanced mathematics in constructing the universe.

*Scientific American*(May 1963) - People love to admit they have bad handwriting or that they can't do math. And they will readily admit to being awkward: 'I'm such a klutz!' But they will never admit to having a poor sense of humor or being a bad driver.
*permalink* - The underlying physical laws necessary for the mathematical theory of a large part of physics and the whole of chemistry are thus completely known, and the difficulty is only that the exact application of these laws leads to equations much too complicated to be soluble. It therefore becomes desirable that approximate practical methods of applying quantum mechanics should be developed, which can lead to an explanation of the main features of complex atomic systems without too much computation.
*permalink**Proceedings of the Royal Society of London. Series A, Containing Papers of a Mathematical and Physical Character*, Vol. 123, No. 792 (6 April 1929) - To those who do not know mathematics it is difficult to get across a real feeling as to the beauty, the deepest beauty, of nature ... If you want to learn about nature, to appreciate nature, it is necessary to understand the language that she speaks in.
