A Quote by Godfrey H. Hardy on chance, death, ideas, and immortality

Archimedes will be remembered when Aeschylus is forgotten, because languages die and mathematical ideas do not. "Immortality" may be a silly word, but probably a mathematician has the best chance of whatever it may mean.

Godfrey H. Hardy (1877 - 1947)
