Spend the years of learning squandering
Courage for the years of wandering
Through a world politely turning
From the loutishness of learning.
—Gnome, Samuel Beckett

Mathematics . . . would certainly have not come into existence if one had known from the beginning that there was in nature no exactly straight line, no actual circle, no absolute magnitude.
—Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900), Human, All Too Human, sct. 11 (1878)

It never ceases to surprise me at the infinite capacity of the human mind to resist the introduction of useful knowledge.
—Thomas Raynesford Lounsbury

On Teaching
Kahlil Gibran


No man can reveal to you aught but that which already lies half asleep in the dawning of your knowledge.

The teacher who walks in the shadow of the temple, among his followers, gives not of his wisdom but rather of his faith and his lovingness.

If he is indeed wise he does not bid you enter the house of his wisdom, but rather leads you to the threshold of your own mind.

The astronomer may speak to you of his understanding of space, but he cannot give you his understanding.

The musician may sing to you of the rhythm which is in all space, but he cannot give you the ear which arrests the rhythm nor the voice that echoes it.

And he who is versed in the science of numbers can tell of the regions of weight and measure, but he cannot conduct you thither.

For the vision of one man lends not its wings to another man.
