A quotation for today

ErdosPaul Erdős (1913 - 1996)

My mother said, "Even you, Paul, can be in only one place at one time." Maybe soon I will be relieved of this disadvantage. Maybe, once I've left, I'll be able to be in many places at the same time. Maybe then I'll be able to collaborate with Archimedes and Euclid.

Another quotation by one of today's mathematicians.
