A quotation for today

Joseph-Louis Lagrange (1736 - 1813)

As long as algebra and geometry have been separated, their progress have been slow and their uses limited; but when these two sciences have been united, they have lent each mutual forces, and have marched together towards perfection.

Another quotation by one of today's mathematicians
