Jacob T. Schwartz wrote, "To find the simple in the complex, the finite in the infinite - that is not a bad description of the aim and essence of mathematics." This work contains almost 3,000 quotations in mathematics, divided into thirty eight chapters and 389 sections that present quotations over a spectrum from God and religion to the nature of infinity. A few more of the many areas covered historical origins, linguistics, the arts, mathematicians themselves; logic, real and idealized space, number theory, algebra, computers, probability theory, and statistics.
