Famous quotes containing the word pages:

    Mathematics may be compared to a mill of exquisite workmanship, which grinds your stuff of any degree of fineness; but nevertheless, what you get out depends upon what you put in; and as the grandest mill in the world will not extract wheat- flour from peascods, so pages of formulae will not get a definite result out of loose data.
    Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)

    Writing long books is a laborious and impoverishing act of foolishness: expanding in five hundred pages an idea that could be perfectly explained in a few minutes. A better procedure is to pretend that those books already exist and to offer a summary, a commentary.
    Jorge Luis Borges (1899–1986)

    Perhaps these pages are more particularly addressed to poor students. As for the rest of my readers, they will accept such portions as apply to them.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
