...the nature of mathematics defies simple description.
As an art mathematics creates worlds, and as a science it explores them. It is a common unifying force present in all human intellectual endeavor, forever broadening the horizons of the mind, exploring virgin territory, and organizing new information into weapons for another assault on the unknown.

William Berlinghoff
Mathematics: The Art of Reason
1968, p. 2
