Erath, V.
God is a child; and when he began to play, he cultivated mathematics. It is the most godly of man's games.
Das blinde Spiel. 1954.
Erdos, Paul
Mathematics is not yet ready for such problems.
[Attributed by Paul Halmos.]
The American Mathematical Monthly, Nov. 1992
Ellis, Havelock
The mathematician has reached the highest rung on the ladder of human thought.
The Dance of Life.
Ellis, Havelock
It is here [in mathematics] that the artist has the fullest scope of his imagination.
The Dance of Life.
Einstein, Albert (1879-1955)
Science without religion is lame; religion without science is blind.
Reader's Digest, Nov. 1973.
Einstein, Albert (1879-1955)
Most of the fundamental ideas of science are essentially simple, and may, as a rule, be expressed in a language comprehensible to everyone.
The Evolution of Physics.
Einstein, Albert (1879-1955)
We come now to the question: what is a priori certain or necessary, respectively in geometry (doctrine of space) or its foundations? Formerly we thought everything; nowadays we think nothing. Already the distance-concept is logically arbitrary; there need be no things that correspond to it, even approximately.
"Space-Time." Encyclopaedia Britannica, 14th ed.
Einstein, Albert (1879-1955)
If my theory of relativity is proven successful, Germany will claim me as a German and France will declare that I am a citizen of the world. Should my theory prove untrue, France will say that I am a German and Germany will declare that I am a Jew.
Address at the Sorbonne, Paris.
Einstein, Albert (1879-1955)
The search for truth is more precious than its possession.
The American Mathematical Monthly v. 100 no. 3.
Einstein, Albert (1879-1955)
Everything that is really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom.
