More From Henri Poincare
- "One would have to have completely forgotten the history of science so as to not remember that the desire to know nature has had the most constant and the happiest influence on the development of mathematics."
- "If nature were not beautiful, it would not be worth knowing, and if nature were not worth knowing, life would not be worth living."
- "Science is built up of facts, as a house is with stones. But a collection of facts is no more a science than a heap of stones is a house."
