As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain; and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality. 
Albert Einstein 

But the creative principle resides in mathematics. In a certain sense, therefore, I hold true that pure thought can grasp reality, as the ancients dreamed. 
Albert Einstein 

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. 
Albert Einstein 

Do not worry about your problems with mathematics, I assure you mine are far greater. 
Albert Einstein 

Film is one of the three universal languages, the other two: mathematics and music 
Frank Capra 

How can it be that mathematics, being after all a product of human thought which is independent of experience, is so admirably appropriate to the objects of reality? Is human reason, then, without experience, merely by taking thought, able to fathom 
Albert Einstein 


I like mathematics because it is not human and has nothing particular to do with this planet or with the whole accidental universe  because, like Spinoza's God, it won't love us in return. 
Bertrand Russell 

If I were again beginning my studies, I would follow the advice of Plato and start with mathematics. 
Galileo Galilei 

Mathematicians are like Frenchmen: whatever you say to them they translate into their own language and forthwith it is something entirely different 
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe 

Mathematicians, who are only mathematicians, have exact minds, provided all things are explained to them by means of definitions and axioms; otherwise they are inaccurate and insufferable, for they are only right when the principles are quite clear 
Blaise Pascal 

Mathematics are well and good but nature keeps dragging us around by the nose. 
Albert Einstein 

Mathematics is the only science where one never knows what one is talking about nor whether what is said is true 
Bertrand Russell 

Mathematics may be defined as the subject in which we never know what we are talking about, nor whether what we are saying is true 
Bertrand Russell 


Mathematics takes us into the region of absolute necessity, to which not only the actual word, but every possible word, must conform. 
Bertrand Russell 

Mathematics, rightly viewed, posses not only truth, but supreme beauty; a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture

One reason why mathematics enjoys special esteem, above all other sciences, is that its laws are absolutely certain and indisputable, while those of other sciences are to some extent debatable and in constant danger of being overthrown by newly disco 
Albert Einstein 

Our account does not rob mathematicians of their science, by disproving the actual existence of the infinite in the direction of increase, in the sense of the untraceable. In point of fact they do not need the infinite and do not use it. They postula
