A quotation by Hugo Steinhaus
To acquire wealth, one must be lucky -- to keep it, being short of fantasy will do.
It is easy to leave the home of reality and get lost in the woods of mathematics, but
only a few know how to return.
Everybody behaves artificially -- this is quite natural.
Love makes discoveries -- lust, inventions.
Mathematics is an intermediary between spirit and matter.
[Translations by Stanislaw Swierczkowski]
