Johannes Kepler

Johannes Kepler

was a German mathematician, astronomer and astrologer.
I myself, a professional mathematician, on re-reading my own work find it strains my mental powers to recall to mind from the figures the meanings of the demonstrations, meanings which I myself originally put into the figures and the text from my mind. But when I attempt to remedy the obscurity of the material by putting in extra words, I see myself falling into the opposite fault of becoming chatty in something mathematical.More Johannes Kepler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Just as the eye was made to see colours, and the ear to hear sounds, so the human mind was made to understand, not whatever you please, but quantity.More Johannes Kepler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When ships to sail the void between the stars have been built, there will step forth men to sail these ships.More Johannes Kepler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I measured the skies, now the shadows I measure, Sky-bound was the mind, earth-bound the body rests. [Kepler's epitaph]More Johannes Kepler quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
