### Famous quotes containing the words society and/or mathematical:

“I am prisoner of a gaudy and unlivable present, where all forms of human *society* have reached an extreme of their cycle and there is no imagining what new forms they may assume.”

—Italo Calvino (1923–1985)

“As we speak of poetical beauty, so ought we to speak of *mathematical* beauty and medical beauty. But we do not do so; and that reason is that we know well what is the object of mathematics, and that it consists in proofs, and what is the object of medicine, and that it consists in healing. But we do not know in what grace consists, which is the object of poetry.”

—Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)
