Give me a place to stand and I shall move the earth.
給我一個支點,我可以舉起整個地球。

- Archimedes, 287-212 BC,
Ancient Greek mathematician & inventor
Unless you pile up little steps, you can never journey a thousand li; unless you pile up tiny streams, you can never make a river or a sea.

——《荀子》Hsün Tzu
When I consider what people generally want in calculating, I found that it always is a number.

當我思考人們想從計量中得到些甚麼時,
我發現答案總是指向數字。

- Muhammad ibn Musa al-Khwarizmi, c. 780 – c. 850 AD, Persian mathematician, astronomer, geographer & scholar
