A quotation for today

Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970)

The fact that all Mathematics is Symbolic Logic is one of the greatest discoveries of our age; and when this fact has been established, the remainder of the principles of mathematics consists in the analysis of Symbolic Logic itself.

Principles of Mathematics. 1903
