A quotation for today

John W Strutt (Lord Rayleigh) (1842 - 1919)

Some proofs command assent. Others woo and charm the intellect. They evoke delight and an overpowering desire to say, "Amen, Amen".

Quoted in H E Hunter The Divine Proportion (New York 1970)

Another quotation by one of today's mathematicians
