## Notable Quotes

*But there is another reason for the high repute of mathematics: it is mathematics that offers the exact natural sciences a certain measure of security which, without mathematics, they could not attain.*- -- Quoted in 1937: Eric Temple Bell:

- -- Quoted in 1937: Eric Temple Bell:

*How can it be that mathematics, being after all a product of human thought independent of existence, is so admirably adapted to the objects of reality?*- -- Quoted in 1937: Eric Temple Bell:
