David Hilbert

German mathematician
Who of us would not be glad to lift the veil behind which the future lies hidden; to cast a glance at the next advances of
our science and at the secrets of its development during future centuries? What particular goals will there be toward
which the leading mathematical spirits of coming generations will strive? What new methods and new facts in the
wide and rich field of mathematical thought will the new centuries disclose?More David Hilbert quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
One hears a lot of talk about the hostility between scientists and engineers. I don't believe in any such thing. In fact I am quite certain it is untrue... There cannot possibly be anything in it because neither side has anything to do with the other.More David Hilbert quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
[On Cantor's work:] The finest product of mathematical genius and one of the supreme achievements of purely intellectual human activity.More David Hilbert quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I do not see that the sex of the candidate is an argument against her admission as a Privatdozent. After all, the Senate is not a bathhouse.
