A quotation for today

Johann Bernoulli (1667 - 1748)

But just as much as it is easy to find the differential of a given quantity, so it is difficult to find the integral of a given differential. Moreover, sometimes we cannot say with certainty whether the integral of a given quantity can be found or not.

Another quotation by one of today's mathematicians
