So if a man’s wit be wandering, let him study the mathematics; for in demonstrations, if his wit be called away never so little, he must begin again.
The essence of mathematics is not to make simple things complicated, but to make complicated things simple.
The mathematics are distinguished by a particular privilege, that is, in the course of ages, they may always advance and can never recede.
