### Famous quotes containing the words list of, mathematics, problems, unsolved and/or list:

“A man’s interest in a single bluebird is worth more than a complete but dry *list of* the fauna and flora of a town.”

—Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

“I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study *mathematics* and philosophy.”

—John Adams (1735–1826)

“I respect guilt. It is a dangerous but sometimes useful beast. The guilt that made me want to solve all my children’s *problems* meant trouble. The guilt that made me question my role in our mother-daughter squabbles proved helpful. Yes, I care about my kids’ *problems*, and I long to make suggestions. But these days I wait for children to ask for help, and I give it sparingly. Some things can’t be fixed, and I tell them so.”

—Susan Ferraro (20th century)

“The child knows only that he engages in play because it is enjoyable. He isn’t aware of his need to play—a need which has its source in the pressure of *unsolved* problems. Nor does he know that his pleasure in playing comes from a deep sense of well-being that is the direct result of feeling in control of things, in contrast to the rest of his life, which is managed by his parents or other adults.”

—Bruno Bettelheim (20th century)

“Weigh what loss your honor may sustain

If with too credent ear you *list* his songs,

Or lose your heart, or your chaste treasure open

To his unmastered importunity.”

—William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
