[There Had Been A Time, Until 1422, When A Number Of Both Gaelic And Anglo-Irish Students Attended Oxford And Cambridge In England. But Fellow Students Had Complained That Irish Living Together In Large Numbers Sooner Or Later Got Noisy And Violent And There Was No Handling Them. Accordingly, The Universities Imposed A Quota System On Irishman, And Decreed That Those Admitted Must Be Scattered Around Among Non-compatriots: Exclusively Irish Halls Of Residence Were Banned.]

Hilbert Quotes

"To the average mathematician who merely wants to know his work is securely based, the most appealing choice is to avoid difficulties by means of Hilberts program. Here one regards mathematics as a formal game and one is only concerned with the question of consistency ... . The Realist position is probably the one which most mathematicians would prefer to take. It is not until he becomes aware of some of the difficulties in set theory that he would even begin to question it. If these difficulties particularly upset him, he will rush to the shelter of Formalism, while his normal position will be somewhere between the two, trying to enjoy the best of two worlds."

I let him be." - Author: Erich Maria Remarque

Quotes About Tsa

"America is a dream.The poet says it was promises.The people say it is promises—that will come true.The people do not always say things out loud,Nor write them down on paper.The people often holdGreat thoughts in their deepest heartsAnd sometimes only blunderingly express them,Haltingly and stumbling say them,And faultily put them into practice.The people do not always understand each other.But there is, somewhere there,Always the trying to understand,And the trying to say,"You are a man. Together we are building our land." - Author: Langston Hughes
