Joseph Conrad

1857 - 1924

A Quote by Joseph Conrad on imagination, mathematics, respect, and world

Don't talk to me of your Archimedes' lever. He was an absentminded person with a mathematical imagination. Mathematics commands all my respect, but I have no use for engines. Give me the right word and the right accent and I will move the world.

Joseph Conrad (1857 - 1924)
