"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

"A scientist worthy of his name, about all a mathematician, experiences in his work the same impression as an artist; his pleasure is as great and of the same nature." Jules Henri Poincaré (1854-1912)
