A Quote by David Eugene Smith on god, mathematics, merit, poetry, religion, science, spirit, thought, truth, words, and world

One merit of mathematics few will deny: it says more in fewer words than any other science. The formula, e^iπ = -1 expressed a world of thought, of truth, of poetry, and of the religious spirit "God eternally geometrizes."
