Arithmetic Quotes

No man acquires property without acquiring with it a little arithmetic also.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Mathematics is the queen of sciences and arithmetic is the queen of mathematics

Carl Friedrich Gauss

The right merchant is one who has the just average of faculties we call common sense; a man of a strong affinity for facts, who makes up his decision on what he has seen. He is thoroughly persuaded of the truths of arithmetic. There is always a reason, in the man, for his good or bad fortune in making money. Men talk as if there were some magic about this. He knows that all goes on the old road, pound for pound, cent for cent / for every effect a perfect cause / and that good luck is another name for tenacity of purpose.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Golf is a lot of walking, broken up by disappointment and bad arithmetic.

Unknown

In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything, and two minus one equals nothing.

Mignon McLaughlin

The hardest arithmetic to master is that which enables us to count our blessings.

Eric Hoffer

The whole of arithmetic now appeared within the grasp of mechanism.

Charles Babbage

The desire to economize time and mental effort in arithmetical computations, and to eliminate human liability to error is probably as old as the science of arithmetic itself.

Howard H. Aiken

Imagination is perhaps the most decisive characteristic of mankind. My dream is the imagination of space to change the optical impression of the world of objects by a transcendental arithmetic progression of the inner being. That is the precept. In principal any alteration of the object is allowed which has a sufficiently strong creative power behind it. Whether such alteration causes excitement or boredom in the spectator is for you to decide.

Max Beckmann

I have been taking stock of my 50 years since I left Wichita. How I have existed fills me with horror for I failed in everything. Spelling, arithmetic, writing, swimming, tennis, golf, dancing, singing, acting, wife, mistress, whore, friend, even cooking. And I do not excuse myself with the usual escape of not trying. I tried with all my heart.

Louise Brooks
