A quotation for today

Louis Mordell (1888 - 1972)

In 1912 I attended an international mathematical congress held in Cambridge. I went into the buffet room where all the distinguished mathematicians were gathered and I thought to myself, "What an odd looking lot they are."

Another quotation by one of today's mathematicians
