Linear Equations Quotes Linear Equations Quotes by Albert Einstein, Ludwig von Bertalanffy, Max Born and many others. Yes, we now have to divide up our time like that, between politics and our equations. But to me our equations are far more important, for politics are only a matter of present concern. A mathematical equation stands forever. Albert Einstein Concern for man and his fate must always form the chief interest of all technical endeavors. Never forget this in the midst of your diagrams and equations. Albert Einstein Considering the inconceivable complexity of processes even in a simple cell, it is little short of a miracle that the simplest possible model – namely, a linear equation between two variables – actually applies in quite a general number of cases. Ludwig von Bertalanffy If God has made the world a perfect mechanism, He has at least conceded so much to our imperfect intellect that in order to predict little parts of it, we need not solve innumerable differential equations, but can use dice with fair success. Max Born
