Heinrich Hertz

A Quote by Heinrich Hertz on existence, feeling, independence, and intelligence

One cannot escape the feeling that these mathematical formulas have an independent existence and an intelligence of their own, that they are wiser that we are, wiser even than their discoverers, that we get more out of them than was originally put into them.

Heinrich Hertz
