Mathematicians Of The Day

24th August

Quotation of the day

From Thomas Digges
This ball every 24 hours by naturall, uniforme and wonderful slie and smooth motion rouleth rounde, making with his Periode our naturall daye, whereby it seems to us that the huge infinite immoveable Globe should sway and tourne about.
Quoted in E Maor, To infinity and beyond (Princeton 1991)
