Pure mathematics is, in its way,
the poetry of logical ideas.

Albert Einstein

It seems to me now that mathematics is capable of an artistic excellence as great as that of any music, perhaps greater; not because the pleasure it gives (although very pure) is comparable, either in intensity or in the number of people who feel it, to that of music, but because it gives in absolute perfection that combination, characteristic of great art, of godlike freedom, with the sense of inevitable destiny; because, in fact, it constructs an ideal world where everything is perfect but true.

Bertrand Russell

The greatest calamity in the history of science was the failure of Archimedes to invent positional notation.

Carl Friedrich Gauss
