quote by Averroes

Ignorance leads to fear, fear leads to hate, and hate leads to violence. This is the equation.

— Averroes

Most Powerful Equations quotations

An equation means nothing to me unless it expresses a thought of God.

Science is a differential equation. Religion is a boundary condition.

Architecture is a small piece of this human equation, but for those of us who practice it, we believe in its potential to make a difference, to enlighten and to enrich the human experience, to penetrate the barriers of misunderstandin g and provide a beautiful context for life's drama.

I have made the most important discovery of my career, the most important discovery of my life: It is only in the mysterious equations of love that any logic or reasons can be found.

Man's idea of God, and a God's collusion, is an essential part of the equation to wage war.

I think a good MP is someone who cares for their community and becomes their champion, which is why I will make my home in any seat I am lucky enough to be selected for. Looks play no part in the equation, what matters is your ideas and connecting them to the electorate.

Today's scientists have substituted mathematics for experiments, and they wander off through equation after equation, and eventually build a structure which has no relation to reality.

In order to solve this differential equation you look at it until a solution occurs to you.

In the broad light of day mathematicians check their equations and their proofs, leaving no stone unturned in their search for rigour. But, at night, under the full moon, they dream, they float among the stars and wonder at the miracle of the heavens. They are inspired. Without dreams there is no art, no mathematics, no life.

Learning by doing, peer-to-peer teaching, and computer simulation are all part of the same equation.

The collapse of Enron and the subsequent collapse of Arthur Andersen were tremendous tragedies. But as I stated at the time of my indictment on July 8, 2004, failure does not equate to a crime.

Good news is only really good to those directly involved.

Most people lead such futile and useless lives that only bad news makes them feel better. If not better, certainly gooder. If one cannot gain recognition for anything else, he can rest well with the assurance that he is "good", which in most case equates with "right".

It seems that if one is working from the point of view of getting beauty in one's equations, and if one has really a sound insight, one is on a sure line of progress.

To most outsiders, modern mathematics is unknown territory.

Its borders are protected by dense thickets of technical terms; its landscapes are a mass of indecipherable equations and incomprehensible concepts. Few realize that the world of modern mathematics is rich with vivid images and provocative ideas.

The mathematical sciences particularly exhibit order symmetry and limitations;

and these are the greatest forms of the beautiful.

Politics is for the present, but an equation is for eternity.

To solve the human equation, we need to add love, subtract hate, multiply good, and divide between truth and error.

If you have a sister and she dies, do you stop saying you have one? Or are you always a sister, even when the other half of the equation is gone?

With the possible exception of the equator, everything begins somewhere.

The strong bond of friendship is not always a balanced equation;

friendship is not always about giving and taking in equal shares. Instead, friendship is grounded in a feeling that you know exactly who will be there for you when you need something, no matter what or when.

It is more important to have beauty in one's equations than to have them fit experiment.

Only the fairy tale equates changelessness with happiness.

..Permanence means paralysis and death. Only, in movement, with all its pain, is life.

While we tend to equate motherhood solely with maternity, in the Lord’s language, the word 'mother' has layers of meaning...Mothe rhood is more than bearing children, though it is certainly that. It is the essence of who we are as women. It defines our very identity, our divine stature and nature, and the unique traits our Father gave us.

In its famous paradox, the equation of money and excrement, psychoanalysis becomes the first science to state what common sense and the poets have long known -- that the essence of money is in its absolute worthlessness.

Is e=mc2 a sexed equation? Perhaps it is.

Let us make the hypothesis that it is insofar as it privileges the speed of light over other speeds that are vitally necessary to us. What seems to me to indicate the possible sexed nature of the equation is not directly its uses by nuclear weapons, rather it is having privileged what goes the fastest.

We coin concepts and we use them to analyse and explain nature and society.

But we seem to forget, midway, that these concepts are our own constructs and start equating them with reality.

Objectivity cannot be equated with mental blankness;

rather, objectivity resides in recognizing your preferences and then subjecting them to especially harsh scrutiny - and also in a willingness to revise or abandon your theories when the tests fail (as they usually do).

If I have a love-hate relationship with Martinsville, then we're missing the love part of the equation.

If you could equate the amount of time and effort put in mentally and physically into succeeding on the baseball field and measured it by the dirt on your uniform, mine would have been black.

Darwin's theory of evolution is a framework by which we understand the diversity of life on Earth. But there is no equation sitting there in Darwin's 'Origin of Species' that you apply and say, 'What is this species going to look like in 100 years or 1,000 years?' Biology isn't there yet with that kind of predictive precision.

Mathematics is not about numbers, equations, computations, or algorithms: it is about understanding.

Like a Shakespearean sonnet that captures the very essence of love, or a painting that brings out the beauty of the human form that is far more than just skin deep, Euler's Equation reaches down into the very depths of existence.

There is great exhilaration in breaking one of these things.

... Ramanujan gives no hints, no proof of his formulas, so everything you do you feel is your own.[About verifying Ramanujan's equations in a newly found manuscript.]
