## A quotation by Edmund Landau

[Asked for a testimony to the effect that Emmy Noether was a great woman mathematician, he said:]

I can testify that she is a great mathematician, but that she is a woman, I cannot swear.

Quoted in J E Littlewood,

*A Mathematician's Miscellany,*1953.

It gives me the same pleasure when someone else proves a good theorem as when I do it myself.

Quoted in D MacHale,

*Comic Sections*(Dublin 1993)
