quote for the day

"The development of mathematic is a counterpart of the everlasting struggle for greater comprehensiveness and greater freedom: from the particular to the general; from configuration bounded by straight lines to pathological curves; from the properties of this or that specific figure to the properties of all figures; from one dimension to n dimensions; from the finite to the infinit." - Edward Kasner and James R. Newman
