Mathematicians Of The Day

17th September

Quotation of the day

From Marquis de Condorcet
Ideas of uniformity, of regularity, please all minds, especially just minds. ... uniformity of measures can only displease those lawyers who fear to see the number of lawsuits diminished, and those traders who fear a loss of profit from anything which renders commercial transactions easy and simple ... A good law ought to be good for all men, as a good proposition in geometry is good for all men.
Observations on the Spirit of the Laws
