Jules H Poincare QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
A sane mind should not be guilty of a logical fallacy, yet there are very fine minds incapable of following mathematical demonstrations.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
A scientist worthy of his name, about all a mathematician, experiences in his work is the same impression as an artist; his pleasure is as great and of the same nature.

Quotation of Jules H Poincare
A small error in the former will produce an enormous error in the latter.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
A very small cause which escapes our notice determines a considerable effect that we cannot fail to see, and then we say that the effect is due to chance.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
Absolute space, that is to say, the mark to which it would be necessary to refer the earth to know whether it really moves, has no objective existence.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
But even if it were the case that the natural laws had nolonger any secret for us, we could still know the situation approximately.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
Facts do not speak.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
Geometry is not true, it is advantageous.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
How is an error possible in mathematics?
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
Hypotheses are what we lack the least.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
Ideas rose in clouds; I felt them collide until pairs interlocked, so to speak, making a stable combination.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
If nature were not beautiful, it would not be worth knowing, and if nature were not worth knowing, life would not be worth living.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
If one looks at the different problems of the integral calculus which arise naturally when one wishes to go deep into the different parts of physics, it is impossible not to be struck by the analogies existing.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
If that enabled us to predict the succeeding situation with the same approximation, that is all we require, and we should say that the phenomenon had been predicted, that it is governed by the laws.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
If we knew exactly the laws of nature and the situation of the universe at the initial moment, we could predict exactly the situation of the same universe at a succeeding moment.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
In the old days when people invented a new function they had something useful in mind.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
Invention consists in avoiding the constructing of useless contraptions and in constructing the useful combinations which are in infinite minority.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
It has adopted the geometry most advantageous to the species or, in other words, the most convenient.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
It is the harmony of the diverse parts, their symmetry, their happy balance; in a word it is all that introduces order, all that gives unity, that permits us to see clearly and to comprehend at once both the ensemble and the details.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
It is through science that we prove, but through intuition that we discover.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
Just as houses are made of stones, so is science made of facts.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
Mathematical discoveries, small or great are never born of spontaneous generation.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
Mathematicians are born, not made.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
Mathematicians do not study objects, but relations between objects.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
Mathematics is the art of giving the same name to different things.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
Need we add that mathematicians themselves are not infallible?
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
No more than these machines need the mathematician know what he does.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
Now, they invent them deliberately just to invalidate our ancestors' reasoning, and that is all they are ever going to get out of them.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
One would have to have completely forgotten the history of science so as to not remember that the desire to know nature has had the most constant and the happiest influence on the development of mathematics.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
Point set topology is a disease from which the human race will soon recover.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
Science is facts.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
The mathematical facts worthy of being studied are those which, by their analogy with other facts, are capable of leading us to the knowledge of a physical law.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
The mind uses its faculty for creativity only when experience forces it to do so.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
The scientist does not study nature because it is useful; he studies it because he delights in it, and he delights in it because it is beautiful.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare

Quotation of Jules H Poincare
Thought is only a flash between two long nights, but this flash is everything.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
Thus, be it understood, to demonstrate a theorem, it is neither necessary nor even advantageous to know what it means.
Quotation of Jules H Poincare
