Girolamo Cardano Dénes König Arthur Milne

A quotation for today

Girolamo Cardano (1501 - 1576)

To throw in a fair game at Hazards only three-spots, when something great is at stake, or some business is the hazard, is a natural occurrence and deserves to be so deemed; and even when they come up the same way for a second time if the throw be repeated. If the third and fourth plays are the same, surely there is occasion for suspicion on the part of a prudent man.

De Vita Propria Liber.

Another quotation by one of today's mathematicians
