- But there is another reason for the high repute of mathematics: it is mathematics that offers the exact natural sciences a certain measure of security which, without mathematics, they could not attain.
- How can it be that mathematics, being after all a product of human thought independent of existence, is so admirably adapted to the objects of reality?
- ... common sense is, as a matter of fact, nothing more than layers of preconceived notions stored in our memories and emotions for the most part before age eighteen.
