Associate Professor of Mathematics
Shippensburg University
Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but
supreme beauty  a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture, without
appeal to any part of our weaker nature, without the gorgeous trappings of painting
or music, yet sublimely pure, and capable of a stern perfection such as only
the greatest art can show. The true spirit of delight, the exaltation, the sense
of being more than Man, which is the touchstone of the highest excellence, is
to be found in mathematics as surely as poetry.  Bertrand Russell
