A quotation for today

Johann H Lambert (1728 - 1777)

I am undecided wheter or not the Milky Way is but one of countless others all of which form an entire system. Perhaps the light from these infinitely distant galaxies is so faint that we cannot see them.

Quoted in E Maor, To infinity and beyond (Princeton 1991)

Another quotation by one of today's mathematicians
