### Favorite Laplace Quotes

**Laplace**in revising it [The Mécanique Céleste] for the press, says that

**Laplace**himself was frequently unable to recover the details in the chain of reasoning, and if satisfied that the conclusions were correct, he was content to insert the constantly recurring formula, 'Il est àisé avoir' [it is easy to see]."

*Author: Biot*

*Author: Bowditch*

**Laplace**gave Biot the equation and left him to sink or swim for a few years in trying to derive it. That would have been merely an instance of the way great mathematicians since the very beginnings of mathematical research have effortlessly maintained their superiority over ordinary mortals."

*Author: Clifford A. Truesdell*

**Laplace**realized that you should try to get more error: aggregate enough flawed data, and you get a glimpse of the truth. "The genius of statistics, as

**Laplace**defined it, was that it did not ignore errors; it quantified them," the writer Louis Menand observed. "…The right answer is, in a sense, a function of the mistakes."

*Author: Kathryn Schulz*

**Laplace**on the other hand explains nothing, is indifferent to style, and, if satisfied that his results are correct, is content to leave them either with no proof or with a faulty one. Gauss is as exact and elegant as Lagrange, but even more difficult to follow than Laplace, for he removes every trace of the analysis by which he reached his results, and studies to give a proof which while rigorous shall be as concise and synthetical as possible."

*Author: Lagrange*

**Laplace**was a perfect sledge hammer in bursting purely mathematical obstacles; but, like that useful instrument, it gave neither finish nor beauty to the results. In truth, in truism if the reader please,

**Laplace**was neither Lagrange nor Euler, as every student is made to feel. The second is power and symmetry, the third power and simplicity; the first is power without either symmetry or simplicity. But, nevertheless,

**Laplace**never attempted investigation of a subject without leaving upon it the marks of difficulties conquered: sometimes clumsily, sometimes indirectly, always without minuteness of design or arrangement of detail; but still, his end is obtained and the difficulty is conquered."

*Author: Laplace*

**Laplace**with the words 'Thus it plainly appears', I am sure that hours and perhaps days, of hard study will alone enable me to discover how it plainly appears."

*Author: Laplace*

*Author: Leonard Mlodinow*

*Author: Napoleon*

**Laplace**what he thought of God. He owned that he was an atheist."

*Author: Napoleon*

*Author: Nassim Nicholas Taleb*

**Laplace**and propelled by compressible flow."

*Author: Neil Armstrong*

**Laplace**did for celestial mechanics and Maxwell did for electrodynamics, namely, made his field a well-nigh finished theoretical structure."

*Author: Willard Gibbs*

### Today's Quote

My baby is five. She falls asleep in my arms . . . . Her breath is warm on my face, all that is alive and warm and breathing inside of her now, falling upon me, and I can't capture it, hold it, this, her life now, me in this moment. She is leaving me, she's growing up and moving away from me, and she stirs and I sweep back the crop of the golden ringlets. Stay, Little One, stay. Love's a deep wound and what is a mother without a child and why can't I hold on to now forever and her here and me here and why does time snatch away a heart I don't think mine can beat without? Why do we all have to grow old? Why do we have to keep saying good-bye?" *
