Music is the arithmetic of sounds as optics is the geometry of light.
— Claude Debussy
All one's inventions are true, you can be sure of that. Poetry is as exact a science as geometry.
— Gustave Flaubert geometry quote
There is still a difference between something and nothing, but it is purely geometrical and there is nothing behind the geometry.
— Martin Gardner
The analytical geometry of Descartes and the calculus of Newton and Leibniz have expanded into the marvelous mathematical method
— Nicholas Murray Butler
In reality the universe has no geometry.
— geometry quotation by Kedar Joshi

The early study of Euclid made me a hater of geometry.

Now tequila may be the favored beverage of outlaws but that doesn't mean it gives them preferential treatment. In fact, tequila probably has betrayed as many outlaws as has the central nervous system and dissatisfied wives. Tequila, scorpion honey, harsh dew of the doglands, essence of Aztec, crema de cacti; tequila, oily and thermal like the sun in solution; tequila, liquid geometry of passion; Tequila, the buzzard god who copulates in midair with the ascending souls of dying virgins; tequila, firebug in the house of good taste; O tequila, savage water of sorcery, what confusion and mischief your sly, rebellious drops do generate!

Geometry is not true, it is advantageous.

In terms of the game theory, we might say the universe is so constituted as to maximize play. The best games are not those in which all goes smoothly and steadily toward a certain conclusion, but those in which the outcome is always in doubt. Similarly, the geometry of life is designed to keep us at the point of maximum tension between certainty and uncertainty, order and chaos. Every important call is a close one. We survive and evolve by the skin of our teeth. We really wouldn't want it any other way.

The two elements the traveler first captures in the big city are extra human architecture and furious rhythm. Geometry and anguish. At first glance, the rhythm may be confused with gaiety, but when you look more closely at the mechanism of social life and the painful slavery of both men and machines, you see that it is nothing but a kind of typical, empty anguish that makes even crime and gangs forgivable means of escape.

The geometry of landscape and situation seems to create its own systems of time, the sense of a dynamic element which is cinematizing the events of the canvas, translating a posture or ceremony into dynamic terms. The greatest movie of the 20th century is the Mona Lisa, just as the greatest novel is Gray's Anatomy.

The power of mathematics is often to change one thing into another, to change geometry into language.

Crystals grew inside rock like arithmetic flowers.
They lengthened and spread, added plane to plane in an awed and perfect obedience to an absolute geometry that even stones  maybe only the stones  understood.

We learned to put discipline in the haircuts by using actual geometry, actual architectural shapes and bone structure. The cut had to be perfect and layered beautifully, so that when a woman shook it, it just fell back in.

Everything one invents is true, you may be perfectly sure of that. Poetry is as precise as geometry.

It is hard to convince a highschool student that he will encounter a lot of problems more difficult than those of algebra and geometry.

The human heart likes a little disorder in its geometry.

Projective geometry is all geometry.

The two elements the traveler first captures in the big city are extra human architecture and furious rhythm. Geometry and anguish.

In things to be seen at once, much variety makes confusion, another vice of beauty. In things that are not seen at once, and have no respect one to another, great variety is commendable, provided this variety transgress not the rules of optics and geometry.

It has adopted the geometry most advantageous to the species or, in other words, the most convenient.

Human knowledge is dark and uncertain; philosophy is dark, astrology is dark, and geometry is dark.

I've always been passionate about geometry and the study of threedimensional forms.

In terms of individuals who actually inspired me, very few of the academic people that I had access to had that power over me. Maybe it's simply because I wasn't that committed to geometry.

And since geometry is the right foundation of all painting, I have decided to teach its rudiments and principles to all youngsters eager for art.

The description of right lines and circles, upon which geometry is founded, belongs to mechanics. Geometry does not teach us to draw these lines, but requires them to be drawn.

Einstein's gravitational theory, which is said to be the greatest single achievement of theoretical physics, resulted in beautiful relations connecting gravitational phenomena with the geometry of space; this was an exciting idea.

A geometry implies the heterogeneity of locus, namely that there is a locus of the Other. Regarding this locus of the Other, of one sex as Other, as absolute Other, what does the most recent development in topology allow us to posit?

I am coming more and more to the conviction that the necessity of our geometry cannot be demonstrated, at least neither by, nor for, the human intellect.

I find purer philosophy in a Poem than in a Conclusion of Geometry, a chemical analysis, or a physical law.
