"May not Music be described as the Mathematics of sense, Mathematics as the Music of reason, the soul of each the same? Thus the musician feels Mathematics, the mathematician thinks Music - Music the dream, Mathematics the working life - each to receive its consummation from the other when the human intelligence, elevated to its perfect type, skall shine forth glorified in some future Mozart-Dirichlet or Beethoven-Gauss - a union already not indistinctly foreshadowed in the genious and labors of a Helmholtz!"

James Joseph Sylvester, matematician născut la Londra în 1814
