The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trials.

Chinese proverb

The secret to education is in respecting the student.

Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson

All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.

Quote by Galileo Galilei

If people do not believe that mathematics is simple, it is only because they do not realize how complicated life is.

Quote by John von Neumann

We cannot teach people anything; we can only help them discover it within themselves.

Quote by Galileo Galilei

The obstacle is the path.

Zen saying, author unknown

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.

Quote by Bertrand Russell, Mysticism and Logic
