A Quote by Carl G. Hempel on bachelors, certainty, contentment, information, mathematics, and sharing

The propositions of mathematics have, therefore, the same unquestionable certainty which is typical of such propositions as "All bachelors are unmarried," but they also share the complete lack of empirical content which is associated with that certainty: The propositions of mathematics are devoid of all factual content; they convey no information whatever on any empirical subject matter.

Carl G. Hempel

A Quote by Barbara Tuchman on america, bachelors, destruction, freedom, illusions, independence, innocence, power, surprises, and world

In April 1917 the illusion of isolation was destroyed, America came to the end of innocence, and of the exuberant freedom of bachelor independence. That the responsibilities of world power have not made us happier is no surprise. To help ourselves manage them, we have replaced the illusion of isolation with a new illusion of omnipotence.

Barbara Tuchman (1912 - 1989)
