A quotation for today

Stefan Banach (1892 - 1945)

A mathematician is a person who can find analogies between theorems; a better mathematician is one who can see analogies between proofs and the best mathematician can notice analogies between theories. One can imagine that the ultimate mathematician is one who can see analogies between analogies.

Another quotation by one of today's mathematicians
