A Quote by Niels H. Abel on determination, mathematics, and words

If you disregard the very simplest cases, there is in all of mathematics not a single infinite series whose sum has been rigorously determined. In other words,the most important parts of mathematics stand without a foundation.

Niels H. Abel (1802 - 1829)
