Brian Greene's Quotes


  Over the centuries, monumental upheavals in science have emerged time and again from following the leads set out by mathematics.  
 -  Brian Greene
  

  For most people, the major hurdle in grasping modern insights into the nature of the universe is that these developments are usually phrased using mathematics.  
 -  Brian Greene
  

  In my own research when I'm working with equations, I never feel like I really understand what I'm doing if I'm solely relying on the mathematics for my understanding. I need to have a visual picture in my mind. I'm constantly translating from the math to some intuitive mind's-eye picture.  
 -  Brian Greene
  

  I think math is a hugely creative field, because there are some very well-defined operations that you have to work within. You are, in a sense, straightjacketed by the rules of the mathematics. But within that constrained environment, it's up to you what you do with the symbols.
