Perplexed Quotes (1 quote)
It may well be doubted whether, in all the range of Science, there is any field so fascinating to the explorerso rich in hidden treasuresso fruitful in delightful surprisesas that of Pure Mathematics. The charm lies chiefly, I think, in the absolute certainty of its results: for that is what, beyond all mental treasures, the human intellect craves for. Let us only be sure of something! More light, more light And if our fate be death, give light and let us die This is the cry that, through all the ages, is going up from perplexed Humanity, and Science has little else to offer, that will really meet the demands of its votaries, than the conclusions of Pure Mathematics.
