A quotation for today

James J Sylvester (1814 - 1897)

...there is no study in the world which brings into more harmonious action all the faculties of the mind than [mathematics], ... or, like this, seems to raise them, by successive steps of initiation, to higher and higher states of conscious intellectual being ...

Presidential Address to British Association, 1869

Another quotation by one of today's mathematicians
