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

“Being dismantled before our eyes are not just individual programs that politicians cite as too expensive but the whole idea that *society* has a stake in the well-being of children down the block and the security of families on the other side of town. Whether or not kids eat well, are nurtured and have a roof over their heads is not just a consequence of how their parents behave. It is also a responsibility of *society*—but now apparently a diminishing one.”

—Richard B. Stolley (20th century)

“The most distinct and beautiful statement of any truth must take at last the *mathematical* form.”

—Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
