A quotation for today

G H Hardy (1877 - 1947)

Archimedes will be remembered when Aeschylus is forgotten, because languages die and mathematical ideas do not. "Immortality" may be a silly word, but probably a mathematician has the best chance of whatever it may mean.

A Mathematician's Apology (London 1941)

Another quotation by one of today's mathematicians
