"Many who have never had occasion to learn what mathematics is confuse it with
arithmetic, and consider it a dry and arid science. In reality, however, it is the science
which demands the utmost imagination [which is more than just making things up] ..... It
seems to me that the poet must see what others do not see, must look deeper than others
look. And the mathematician must do the same thing." -- Sonia Kovalevsky.
