A quotation for today

Paul Erdős (1913 - 1996)

Why are numbers beautiful? It's like asking why is Beethoven's Ninth Symphony beautiful. If you don't see why, someone can't tell you. I know numbers are beautiful. If they aren't beautiful, nothing is.

Another quotation by one of today's mathematicians
