Mathematics alone make us feel the limits of our intelligence. For we can always suppose in the case of an experiment that it is inexplicable because we don't happen to have all the data. In mathematics we have all the data and yet we don't understand. We always come back to the contemplation of our human wretchedness. What force is in relation to our will, the impenetrable opacity of mathematics is in relation to our intelligence.More Simone Weil quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The needs of a human being are sacred. Their satisfaction cannot be subordinated either to reasons of state, or to any consideration of money, nationality, race, or color, or to the moral or other value attributed to the human being in question, or to any consideration whatsoever.More Simone Weil quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Contradiction itself, far from always being a criterion of error, is sometimes a sign of truth.More Simone Weil quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
