Joseph-Louis LaGrange quote
---------------------------------------------------------

"If I had been rich, I probably would not have devoted myself to mathematics."
- Joseph-Louis Lagrange

If I had inherited a fortune I should probably not have cast my lot with mathematics. -- Joseph-Louis Lagrange
-------------------------------------------------------------

"It took only a moment to cause this head to fall
and a hundred years will not suffice to produce its like ."
- Lagrange on the execution of Chemist Antoine-Laurent Lavoisier during the French revolution (in 1794).
Lavoisier had intervened the year before to prevent Lagrange's arrest as a foreigner.

"I believe that, in general, one of the first principles of every wise man
is to conform strictly to the laws of the country in which he is living,
even when they are unreasonable."
- Joseph-Louis Lagrange (1736, Turin -1813, Paris)

The reader will find no figures in this work. The methods which I set forth do not require either constructions or geometrical or mechanical reasonings: but only algebraic operations, subject to a regular and uniform rule of procedure.
Joseph-Louis LaGrange

Joseph-Louis LaGrange quote algebra

Joseph-Louis Lagrange (1736 to 1813)

As long as algebra and geometry have been separated, their progress have been slow and their uses limited; but when these two sciences have been united, they have lent each mutual forces, and have marched together towards perfection.
