* গণিত যে মাথো সত্যৰহে আধাৰ এনে নহয়,সৰ্বোত্তম সৌন্দৰ্যৰ উপস্থিতিও ইয়াতেই লক্ষ্য কৰা যায়। ভাষ্কৰ্য্যৰ দৰে এই সৌন্দৰ্য শীতল আৰু নৈতিক গুণসম্পন্ন, যাৰ আস্বাদন দুৰ্বল প্ৰকৃতিৰ ব্যক্তিৰ পক্ষে সম্ভৱ নহয়। চিত্ৰ(Painting) আৰু সঙ্গীতৰ উজ্জ্বল বহিৰঙ্গ ইয়াৰ নাই । এয়া আতি উচ্চ স্তৰৰ এক বিশুদ্ধ সৌন্দৰ্য। ( বাৰ্ট্ৰাণ্ড ৰাছেল। অনু: তাপস সাহা।)


* সপোন আৰু ৰহস্যৰ দেশ। জোখ-মাপৰ নিয়ম বেলেগ, স্থান-কালৰ পৰিমাণো বেলেগ। পৃথিৱীৰ সীমিত পৰিৱেশৰ ধাৰণা অনুসাৰে সপোনৰ দেশৰ সকলো ঘটনাই আচহুৱা। দুজন অধিবাসীয়ে পৰস্পৰক লগ ধৰিবলৈ আগ বাঢ়ি আহি আছে। প্ৰায় লগ হয় হয় অৱস্থা। পিছে কোনেও কাকো চুব নোৱাৰিলে। চুইত্ চুইত্। হঠাতে এজন এফালে, অইনজন বিপৰীত ফালে অদৃশ্য হৈ গ’ল।  \lim_{x\rightarrow a+}\frac{1}{x-a}=\infty  আৰু  \lim_{x\rightarrow a-}\frac{1}{x-a}=-\infty .

(ৰেৱতী মোহন দত্ত চৌধুৰীৰ এটা প্ৰৱন্ধৰ আৰম্ভণি অংশ এইয়া। তেখেতেই আছিল “শীলভদ্ৰ” ছদ্মনামেৰে বিখ্যাত গল্পকাৰগৰাকী।)

* It (Mathematics) is a part of our culture, and no person can count himself truly educated without some idea of what it is and does. It is, above all, a human subject, with its own triumphs and disasters, frustrations and insights.  (Ian Stewart.)


* Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty — a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture, without appeal to any part of our weaker nature, without the gorgeous trappings of painting or music, yet sublimely pure, and capable of a stern perfection such as only the greatest art can show. The true spirit of delight, the exaltation, the sense of being more than Man, which is the touchstone of the highest excellence, is to be found in mathematics as surely as poetry.  (Bertrand Russell.)


* Mathematicians aren't satisfied because they know there are no solutions up to four million or four billion; they really want to know that there are no solutions up to infinity. (Andrew Wiles.)


* It is impossible to explain honestly the beauties of the laws of nature in a way that people can feel, without their having some deep understanding of mathematics. I am sorry, but this seems to be the case. (Richard Phillips Feynman.)


* The only way to learn mathematics is to do mathematics. (Paul Halmos.)


* Don’t just read it! Ask own questions, look for your own examples, discover your own proof. Is the hypothesis necessary? Is the converse true? What happens in the classical special case? Where does the proof use the hypothesis? (Paul halmos.)


* O students, study mathematics and do not build without foundation. (Leonardo da Vinci.)


* Nature is a book one can read but the language is mathematics. (Galileo Galilei.)


* One of the best things about mathematics is that it teaches you to think clearly, no matter what you are thinking about. (Maria Chudnovsky.)
