A Mathematician's Lament - Paul Lockhart

This quote was added by weiahe
The fact is that there is nothing as dreamy and poetic, nothing as radical, subversive, and psychedelic, as mathematics. It is every bit as mindblowing as cosmology or physics, and allows more freedom of expression than poetry, art, or music. Mathematics is the purest of the arts, as well as the most misunderstood.
