A Quote by Pearl S. Buck on fatherhood, justice, language, life, mathematics, meaning, music, relationships, scientists, and understanding

No one really understood music unless he was a scientist, her father had declared, and not just a scientist, either, oh, no, only the real ones, the theoreticians, whose language was mathematics. She had not understood mathematics until he had explained to her that it was the symbolic language of relationships. "And relationships," he had told her, "contained the essential meaning of life."
