A quotation for today

Sofia Kovalevskaya (1850 - 1891)

Many who have had an opportunity of knowing any more about mathematics confuse it with arithmetic, and consider it an arid science. In reality, however, it is a science which requires a great amount of imagination

Another quotation by one of today's mathematicians
