Some Quotes

"Sometimes it happens that a man's circle of horizon becomes smaller and smaller, and as the radius approaches zero it concentrates on one point. And then that becomes his point of view."
David Hilbert

"Hỏi rằng người ở quê đâu
Thưa rằng tôi ở rất lâu quê nhà"
Bùi Giáng

"Beauty is the first test: there is no permanent place in the world for ugly Mathematics."
A Mathematician's Apology (London 1941).
Godfrey Harold Hardy

"We can only see a short distance ahead, but we can see plenty there that needs to be done."
Computing Machinery and Intelligence (1950). (The paper)
