Mathematics...reveals every genuine truth,
for it knows every hidden secret,
and bears the key to every subtlety of letters;
whoever, then, has the effrontery to study physics
while neglecting mathematics,
should know from the start
that he will never make his entry
through the portals of wisdom.

Thomas Bradwardine
English mathematician (1295-1349)
