### Famous quotes containing the word mathematical:

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

—Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

“It is by a *mathematical* point only that we are wise, as the sailor or the fugitive slave keeps the polestar in his eye; but that is sufficient guidance for all our life. We may not arrive at our port within a calculable period, but we would preserve the true course.”

—Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

“An accurate charting of the American woman’s progress through history might look more like a corkscrew tilted slightly to one side, its loops inching closer to the line of freedom with the passage of time—but like a *mathematical* curve approaching infinity, never touching its goal. . . . Each time, the spiral turns her back just short of the finish line.”

—Susan Faludi (20th century)
