Theorem of the day from Robin Whitty  Mathematician of the week 
Edward Titchmarsh (1899  1963)
I met a man once who told me that far from believing in the square root of minus one, he didn't believe in minus one. This is at any rate a consistent attitude.
Another quotation by one of today's mathematicians
Yesterday  Today  Tomorrow  Whole year
