### Famous quotes containing the words mathematics and/or pure:

“... though *mathematics* may teach a man how to build a bridge, it is what the Scotch Universities call the humanities, that teach him to be civil and sweet-tempered.”

—Amelia E. Barr (1831–1919)

“So Lycidas sunk low, but mounted high

Through the dear might of him that walk’d the waves,

Where other groves and other streams along

With nectar *pure* his oozy locks he laves

And hears the unexpressive nuptial song

In the bless’d kingdoms meek of joy and love.

There entertain him all the saints above

In solemn troops and sweet societies,

That sing, and singing in their glory move,

And wipe the tears for ever from his eyes.”

—John Milton (1608–1674)
