„At the present time it is of course quite customary for physicists to trespass on chemical ground, for mathematicians to do excellent work in physics, and for physicists to develop new mathematical procedures… Trespassing is one of the most successful techniques in science.“

„Only mathematics and mathematical logic can say as little as the physicist means to say.“

—  Bertrand Russell logician, one of the first analytic philosophers and political activist 1872 - 1970

1930s
Kontext: Ordinary language is totally unsuited for expressing what physics really asserts, since the words of everyday life are not sufficiently abstract. Only mathematics and mathematical logic can say as little as the physicist means to say.

„Those who really solve mathematical puzzles are the physicists.“

—  Carlo Beenakker Dutch physicist 1960

In Interview with Professor Carlo Beenakker. Interviewers: Ramy El-Dardiry and Roderick Knuiman (February 1, 2006).
Original: (nl) ... de wiskunde (houdt) zich veel meer bezig (...) met bijvoorbeeld de structuur achter iets of met het bouwwerk van iets. Wiskundigen zijn ook niet echt een soort puzzelaars. Degenen die echt wiskundige puzzels oplossen dat zijn de natuurkundigen. Als je het leuk vindt om wiskundige puzzels op te lossen, moet je geen wiskunde maar natuurkunde gaan studeren!
Kontext: … mathematicians are much more concerned for example with the structure behind something or with the whole edifice. Mathematicians are not really puzzlers. Those who really solve mathematical puzzles are the physicists. If you like to solve mathematical puzzles, you should not study mathematics but physics!
