„Programming is much much harder than doing mathematics.“

—  Doron Zeilberger Israeli mathematician 1950

The Narrow-Minded and Ignorant Referee's Report [and Zeilberger's Response] of Zeilberger's Paper "Automaric CounTilings" that was rejected by Helene Barcelo and the Members of the Advisory Board [that includes(!) Enumeration Expert Mireille Bousquet-Melou] of the Journal of Combinatorial Theory-Series A.

„There is no problem in all mathematics that cannot be solved by direct counting. But with the present implements of mathematics many operations can be performed in a few minutes which without mathematical methods would take a lifetime.“

—  Ernst Mach Austrian physicist and university educator 1838 - 1916

Источник: 19th century, Popular Scientific Lectures [McCormack] (Chicago, 1898), p. 197; On mathematics and counting.

„Young man, in mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them.“

—  John Von Neumann Hungarian-American mathematician and polymath 1903 - 1957

Reply, according to Dr. Felix T. Smith of Stanford Research Institute, to a physicist friend who had said "I'm afraid I don't understand the method of characteristics," as quoted in The Dancing Wu Li Masters: An Overview of the New Physics (1979) by Gary Zukav, Bantam Books, p. 208, footnote.

„This elegant generalization is mathematically very appealing; but physics means facing facts. You should take up case by case.“

—  Kariamanickam Srinivasa Krishnan Indian physicist 1898 - 1961

One should not value elegant math above physical facts. As quoted by [Sundaram, R., 1998, December 10, K. S. Krishnan—the complete physicist, Current Science, 75, 11, 1263-1265]

„If you are receptive and humble, mathematics will lead you by the hand.“

—  Paul Dirac theoretical physicist 1902 - 1984

As quoted in The Strangest Man: The Hidden Life of Paul Dirac, Mystic of the Atom (2009) by Graham Farmelo, p. 435
Контексте: If you are receptive and humble, mathematics will lead you by the hand. Again and again, when I have been at a loss how to proceed, I have just had to wait until I have felt the mathematics led me by the hand. It has led me along an unexpected path, a path where new vistas open up, a path leading to new territory, where one can set up a base of operations, from which one can survey the surroundings and plan future progress.

„Mathematics alone will blind you and let others rob you.“

—  Aaron C. Brown American financial analyst 1956

Источник: The Poker Face of Wall Street (2006), Chapter 9, Who Got Game, p. 279
Контексте: Mathematical theory, tested in practice and constantly retested, is a valuable aid to play. Mathematics alone will blind you and let others rob you.

„It is enigma enough that the world is described by mathematics; but by simple mathematics, of the sort that a few years energetic study now produces familiarity with, this is an enigma within an enigma.“

—  John D. Barrow British scientist 1952

New Theories of Everything (2007)
Контексте: Scanning the past millennia of human achievement reveals just how much has been achieved during the last three hundred years since Newton set in motion the effective mathematization of Nature. We found that the world is curiously adapted to a simple mathematical description. It is enigma enough that the world is described by mathematics; but by simple mathematics, of the sort that a few years energetic study now produces familiarity with, this is an enigma within an enigma.<!--Ch. 1, p. 2
