"If
someone says...that mathematical reasoning
cannot be carried beyond a certain point, you may be sure that the
really interesting problem begins precisely there."

--Felix Klein, *Elementary Mathematics from an Advanced Standpoint*

"We
can forgive a man for making a useful thing
as long as he does not admire it. The only excuse for making a
useless thing is that one admires it intensely."

--Oscar Wilde, *The Picture of Dorian Gray*

--Edgar Degas
