This, therefore, is Mathematics; she reminds you of the invisible form of the soul; she gives life to her own discoveries; she awakens the mind and purifies the intellect; she brings light to our intrinsic ideas; she abolishes oblivion and ignorance which is ours by birth. —Proclus, c. 450

I guess that Mathematics is a woman, well, at least according to Proclus. Yay women!! Interesting.

Gauss said that mathematics is the queen of science and number theory is the queen of mathematics.

So true. Mathematics is a necessary condition for almost all disciplines to exist.
