Equations Quotes

Yes, we now have to divide up our time like that, between politics and our equations. But to me our equations are far more important, for politics are only a matter of present concern. A mathematical equation stands forever.
Albert Einstein 
Cancer is really hard to go through and it's really hard to watch someone you love go through, and I know because I have been on both sides of the equation.
Cynthia Nixon

2+2=5 wasn't intentional. I thought you carry a 1 every time there are two 2's in an equation. I'm not stupid, the mathematicians is stupid
Thomas Edward Yorke Atoms for Peace 
Through algebra you easily arrive at equations, but always to pass therefrom to the elegant constructions and demonstrations which usually result by means of the method of porisms is not so easy, nor is one's ingenuity and power of invention so greatly exercised and refined in this analysis.
Isaac Newton 
The sceptic will say, 'It may well be true that this system of equations is reasonable from a logical standpoint, but this does not prove that it corresponds to nature.' You are right, dear sceptic. Experience alone can decide on truth.
Albert Einstein 
Yes I know of James Clerk Maxwell, ... And I have used his equations.
Buzz Aldrin 
The special theory of relativity owes its origins to Maxwell's equations of the electromagnetic field.
Albert Einstein 
But something, somehow, had made all these paths converge. You couldn't find it on a checklist, or work it into the equation. It just happened.
Sarah Dessen

Given certain known factors in an equation and the equation comprising a situation of absolute need  any form of need  you can predict the results. Leave a sick junkie in the back room of a drugstore and only one result is possible.
William S. Burroughs 
The truth shall set you free. When you hear the truth, it sets you free. So mathematics is truth. It adds up. There's no error. Only time there's an error is when man miscalculates his own problems or his own equations.
Robert Fitzgerald Diggs Achozen 
God is not described in equations.
Sean M. Carroll 
Being gifted intellectually is only a small part of the equation of success. Concentrate on the factors you have control over: persistence, selfdiscipline, confidence. Far more failures are due to lack of will than lack of ability.
Terry Bradshaw 
What appear to be the most valuable aspects of the theoretical physics we have are the mathematical descriptions which enable us to predict events. These equations are, we would argue, the only realities we can be certain of in physics; any other ways we have of thinking about the situation are visual aids or mnemonics which make it easier for beings with our sort of macroscopic experience to use and remember the equations.
Celia Green 
You'd be surprised how easy some things can be, things you never thought you'd do, when you take selfrespect out of the equation.
Sarah Addison Allen

Here’s the thing: Admitting I’m flirting is a big step for me. I don’t want to be ignored. It hurts, like I’m being told that it’s just me. That I’m flirting, and he’s just handing out equations.
Courtney Milan 
"Do you know," the Devil confided, "not even the best mathematicians on other planets  all far ahead of yours  have solved it? Why, there is a chap on Saturn  he looks something like a mushroom on stilts  who solves partial differential equations mentally; and even he's given up."
Arthur Porges 
A mathematician believes that describing the speed of Mercury with equations amounts to science.
Bill Gaede 
There is great exhilaration in breaking one of these things. ... Ramanujan gives no hints, no proof of his formulas, so everything you do you feel is your own.[About verifying Ramanujan's equations in a newly found manuscript.]
George Andrews 
You can learn to find unknowns in equations, draw equidistant lines and demonstrate theorems, but in real life there's nothing to position, calculate, or guess.
Delphine de Vigan 
Those who think 'Science is Measurement' should search Darwin's works for numbers and equations.
David H. Hubel

My father had to flee from what is today Pakistan when he was a child, and he became a manager at IBM, and any item of consumption he would acquire was a direct measurement of his success in life. But that same equation wasn't going to work for me  I was quite clear about that in my early teens.
Tino Sehgal 
Challenger was lost because NASA came to believe its own propaganda. The agency's deeply impacted cultural hubris had it that technologyengineeringwould always triumph over random disaster if certain rules were followed. The engineersturnedtechnocrats could not bring themselves to accept the psychology of machines with abandoning the core principle of their own faith: equations, geometry, and repetitionphysical law, precision design, and testingmust defy chaos.
William E. Burrows 
The mathematicians have been very much absorbed with finding the general solution of algebraic equations, and several of them have tried to prove the impossibility of it. However, if I am not mistaken, they have not as yet succeeded. I therefore dare hope that the mathematicians will receive this memoir with good will, for its purpose is to fill this gap in the theory of algebraic equations.
Niels Henrik Abel 
It is more important to have beauty in one's equations than to have them fit experiment.
Paul Dirac
