Gösta Mittag-Leffler William Young


A quotation for today

Gösta Mittag-Leffler (1846 - 1927)

The mathematician's best work is art, a high perfect art, as daring as the most secret dreams of imagination, clear and limpid. Mathematical genius and artistic genius touch one another.

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

Another quotation by one of today's mathematicians
