Quote: Mathematics

Mathematics 6 "…my mathematics professors taught me to see math as a process of thought—a language in which to express much, but certainly not all, of human activity; to this day, I see quantification as a language to add precision to reasoning about the world…it cannot deal with issues of morality, beauty, and love, but it is a powerful tool too often neglected when we seek to overcome poverty, fiscal deficits, or the failure of our national health programs." McNamara’s In Retrospect
