MATH POEM
 I am the absolute crest of prudence.No
bounds
 
limit
me to be of predisposition.I stand to avow the
notation
of surmise; The
matrix
from a
distance
that labels
infinity
. I am the absolute crest of prudence.I learned not to deceive nor con reality.
Parallel
ism is the
perimeter
of my enterprise.
Conversion
of impracticality
negates
my stand. I am the absolute crest of prudence.
Real
and
imaginary
, I cannot distinguish. Through forth and by parts, I learned to
integrate
.My Master’s harangue, bewildering my persona. I am the absolute crest of prudence.I live beyond the
parameter
of my
plane
.
Point
less of where I plug myself,In the tyranny of 
axes
that transverse my being. I am the absolute crest of prudenceOften I
intersect
the parody of 
function
.Endlessly seeking the summit of 
equilibrium
,I
demand optimization
in my undertaking. I am the absolute crest of prudence.Alone, I set the
algorithm
of 
cardinality
.Flung afar in
distant
Mesopotamia,I thrive not for nostalgia, as I
evaluate
. I am the absolute crest of prudence.Despite my
odd
acumen, I am
complex
.I set the
asymptotes
to where I extendMy
line
of caution, the frontier of my existence. I am the absolute crest of prudence.Bestowed upon me, a task of 
probability
.I craft the
symmetry
of life in all
dimensions
.Proudly, for some, I
do not exist
.
 
MATH QUOTES
A mathematician is a] scientist who can figure out anything except suchsimple things as squaring the circle and trisecting an angle. ~Evan Esar,
Esar's Comic Dictionary 
"Every minute dies a man, Every minute one is born;" I need hardly pointout to you that this calculation would tend to keep the sum total of theworld's population in a state of perpetual equipoise, whereas it is a well-known fact that the said sum total is constantly on the increase. I wouldtherefore take the liberty of suggesting that in the next edition of yourexcellent poem the erroneous calculation to which I refer should becorrected as follows: "Every moment dies a man, And one and a sixteenth isborn." I may add that the exact figures are 1.067, but something must, of course, be conceded to the laws of metre. ~Charles Babbage, letter toAlfred, Lord Tennyson, about a couplet in his "The Vision of Sin"Math is radical! ~Bumper Sticker There was a blithe certainty that came from first comprehending the fullEinstein field equations, arabesques of Greek letters clinging tenuously tothe page, a gossamer web. They seemed insubstantial when you first sawthem, a string of squiggles. Yet to follow the delicate tensors as theycontracted, as the superscripts paired with subscripts, collapsingmathematically into concrete classical entities - potential; mass; forcesvectoring in a curved geometry - that was a sublime experience. The ironfist of the real, inside the velvet glove of airy mathematics. ~GregoryBenford,
Timescape
It is a mathematical fact that fifty percent of all doctors graduate in thebottom half of their class. ~Author UnknownIf two wrongs don't make a right, try three. ~Author UnknownArithmetic is where numbers fly like pigeons in and out of your head. ~CarlSandburg, "Arithmetic"
