Geometry Quotes

I call it sacred geometry. When everything's just right and it feels really balanced, so that when it unfolds to the next part, you feel totally familiar and at ease within the song.
Jason Mraz

I am coming more and more to the conviction that the necessity of our geometry cannot be demonstrated, at least neither by, nor for, the human intellect.
Carl Friedrich Gauss

Mighty is geometry; joined with art, resistless.
Euripides

A work of morality, politics, criticism will be more elegant, other things being equal, if it is shaped by the hand of geometry.
Bernard Le Bovier de Fontenelle

Geometry is one of the handles of science and philosophy.
Xenocrates

That wee have of Geometry, which is the mother of all Naturall Science, wee are not indebted for it to the Schools.
Thomas Hobbes

Geometry existed before creation.
Plato

Why waste words? Geometry existed before the Creation, is coeternal with the mind of God, is God himself (what exists in God that is not God himself?): geometry provided God with a model for the Creation and was implanted into man, together with God's own likeness  and not merely conveyed to his mind through the eyes.
Johannes Kepler

A geometry implies the heterogeneity of locus, namely that there is a locus of the Other. Regarding this locus of the Other, of one sex as Other, as absolute Other, what does the most recent development in topology allow us to posit?
Jacques Lacan

Sire, there is no royal road to geometry.
Euclid

Everything is roughness, except for the circles. How many circles are there in nature? Very, very few. The straight lines. Very shapes are very, very smooth. But geometry had laid them aside because they were too complicated.
Benoit Mandelbrot

Geometry has two great treasures; one is the Theorem of Pythagoras; the other, the division of a line into extreme and mean ratio. The first we may compare to a measure of gold; the second we may name a precious jewel.
Johannes Kepler

Writing is the geometry of the soul.
Plato

Where there is matter, there is geometry.
Johannes Kepler

Regular geometry, the geometry of Euclid, is concerned with shapes which are smooth, except perhaps for corners and lines, special lines which are singularities, but some shapes in nature are so complicated that they are equally complicated at the big scale and come closer and closer and they don't become any less complicated.
Benoit Mandelbrot

Nevertheless, it remains conceivable that the measure relations of space in the infinitely small are not in accordance with the assumptions of our geometry Euclidean geometry, and, in fact, we should have to assume that they are not if, by doing so, we should ever be enabled to explain phenomena in a more simple way.
Bernhard Riemann
