Most of your quotes were inspiring and showed a profound interest in demonstrating your zest for the mathematical world.

Mathematical and Educational Quotation Server
at Westfield State University

This page contains quotations that I have utilized in my mathematics classes at Westfield State University. My students have reacted quite favorably to the "quote of the day", and I have found it often helps me organize my thoughts about a central theme. It is often hard to find a quote that addresses an issue I would like to speak to, and often I find it even harder to put my hands on a quote I know I would like to use. It is my hope that this collection helpful in these endeavors as well as many others that I consider in my paper "Quotations for Every Mathematics Class".
