  • Global equations undergo changes, this is their nature.
    (Mahmoud Ahmadinejad)
    >> More Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Quotations...

  • Concern for man and his fate must always form the chief interest of all technical endeavors. Never forget this in the midst of your diagrams and equations.
    (Albert Einstein)
    >> More Albert Einstein Quotations...

  • You kind of alluded to it in your introduction. I mean, for the last 300 or so years, the exact sciences have been dominated by what is really a good idea, which is the idea that one can describe the natural world using mathematical equations.
    (Stephen Wolfram)
    >> More Stephen Wolfram Quotations...

  • How can you shorten the subject That stern struggle with the multiplication table, for many people not yet ended in victory, how can you make it less Square root, as obdurate as a hardwood stump in a pasturenothing but years of effort can extract it. You can't hurry the process. Or pass from arithmetic to algebra you can't shoulder your way past quadratic equations or ripple through the binomial theorem. Instead, the other way your feet are impeded in the tangled growth, your pace slackens, you sink and fall somewhere near the binomial theorem with the calculus in sight on the horizon. So died, for each of us, still bravely fighting, our mathematical training except for a set of people called 'mathematicians' born so, like crooks.
    (Stephen Butler Leacock)

  • Even if there is only one possible unified theory, it is just a set of rules and equations. What is it that breathes fire into the equations and makes a universe for them to describe?
    (Stephen Hawking)
    >> More Stephen Hawking Quotations...


  • If there are four equations and only three variables, and no one of the equations is derivable from the others by algebraic manipulation then there is another variable missing.
    (Talcott Parsons)
    >> More Talcott Parsons Quotations...

  • If God has made the world a perfect mechanism, He has at least conceded so much to our imperfect intellect that in order to predict little parts of it, we need not solve innumerable differential equations, but can use dice with fair success.
    (Max Born)
    >> More Max Born Quotations...

  • The thing that got me started on the science that I've been building now for about 20 years or so was the question of okay, if mathematical equations can't make progress in understanding complex phenomena in the natural world, how might we make progress?
    (Stephen Wolfram)
    >> More Stephen Wolfram Quotations...

  • I regard it in fact as the great advantage of the mathematical technique that it allows us to describe, by means of algebraic equations, the general character of a pattern even where we are ignorant of the numerical values which will determine its particular manifestation.
    (Friedrich August von Hayek)
    >> More Friedrich August von Hayek Quotations...

  • At the age of 12, I developed an intense interest in mathematics. On exposure to algebra, I was fascinated by simultaneous equations and read ahead of the class to the end of the book.
    (John Pople)

  • I now want to tell three stories about advances in twentieth-century physics. A curious fact emerges in these tales time and again physicists have been guided by their sense of beauty not only in developing new theories but even in judging the validity of physical theories once they are developed......... Simplicity is part of what I mean by beauty, but it is a simplicity of ideas, not simplicity of a mechanical sort that can be measured by counting equations or symbols.
    (S. Weinberg)
    >> More S. Weinberg Quotations...

  • Even before string theory, especially as physics developed in the 20th century, it turned out that the equations that really work in describing nature with the most generality and the greatest simplicity are very elegant and subtle.
    (Edward Witten)
    >> More Edward Witten Quotations...

  • But the beauty of Einstein's equations, for example, is just as real to anyone who's experienced it as the beauty of music. We've learned in the 20th century that the equations that work have inner harmony.
    (Edward Witten)
    >> More Edward Witten Quotations...

  • Equations are more important to me, because politics is for the present, but an equation is something for eternity.
    (Albert Einstein)
    >> More Albert Einstein Quotations...

  • 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.
    (Paul Dirac)
