A quotation for today

Edward Titchmarsh (1899 - 1963)

It can be of no practical use to know that π is irrational, but if we can know, it surely would be intolerable not to know.

Quoted in N Rose Mathematical Maxims and Minims (Raleigh N C 1988)

Another quotation by one of today's mathematicians
