You can do anything if you set your mind to it. Look out for kids, help them dream and be inspired. We teach calculus in schools, but I believe the most important formula is courage plus dreams equals success.
Marlee Matlin
Love can reach the same level of talent, and even genius, as the discovery of differential calculus.
Lev Vygotsky
My first performance was in AP Calculus when they forced me up into the front of the classroom and made me sing a song, which was really scary, but it was fun.
Kina Grannis
Usually, girls weren’t encouraged to go to college and major in math and science. My high school calculus teacher, Ms. Paz Jensen, made math appealing and motivated me to continue studying it in college.
Ellen Ochoa
What Richard and Mildred Loving did was, by their nature, not by any calculus, they separated themselves from the political conversation. They did not have an agenda. They did not want to be martyrs. They did not want to be symbols of a movement.
Jeff Nichols
I can remember times when we’d be having parties, and people would be dancing and everything and I would be sitting there in the middle doing calculus, just doing my little thing.
Lonnie Johnson
There is a calculus, it turns out, for mastering our subconscious urges. For companies like Target, the exhaustive rendering of our conscious and unconscious patterns into data sets and algorithms has revolutionized what they know about us and, therefore, how precisely they can sell.
Charles Duhigg
I was nearly as far behind in calculus as I was in physics. But I wasn’t the only woman in the class, so I felt more comfortable asking questions.
Eileen Pollack
Hard to be a physics major at Rice University if you have flunked calculus.
Elizabeth Moon
I really didn’t understand why hackers would want to hack into a classroom. Are they going to learn algebra? Maybe calculus?
Eric Yuan
I was more interested in skating and the girls and traveling than I was in calculus.
Scott Hamilton
I went to a special public school that was much more focused on academics and learning. My two best teachers were in accounting and calculus, so I fell in love with that, which made me want to go into business.
Stacy Brown-Philpot
When I was in 7th grade, we were all given an exam. It was science and math, and the boys who did well were skipped ahead so that when they got to be juniors or seniors in high school they would be able to go to the local community college and take calculus and physics there. And I wasn’t skipped ahead.
Eileen Pollack
We’re all smart enough to figure out Xs and Os – it’s basketball, it’s not advanced calculus. But the most important thing is can you get your message across to players? Do they believe in you, and do they want to compete for you?
J. B. Bickerstaff
Fractions, decimals, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, mechanics – these are the steps up the mountain side. How high is one going to get? For me, the pinnacle was Projective Geometry. Who today has even heard of this branch of mathematics?
Christopher Robin Milne
Growing up in Highland Park, in high school, I had some very influential teachers: I had a math teacher who taught calculus that helped me learn to be in love with mathematics; I had a chemistry teacher who inspired us to work what was in the class and to go beyond.
John M. Grunsfeld
I like – I love calculus. I love linear algebra, probability and statistics, that kind of stuff. I just really like that.
Pardis Sabeti
For every moment of triumph, there is an unequal and opposite feeling of despair. Take that iconic photograph of Muhammad Ali standing triumphantly over the prostrate, semiconscious wreckage of Sonny Liston. Great photo. Now think of Liston. Do the pleasure/pain calculus.
Charles Krauthammer
I was always very strong in math, physics and calculus.
Debi Thomas
I read ‘On The Road’ in college. I was 18 or 19, and I had a particular quarter where I was taking biology, calculus, and physics. Those were my three classes. It wasn’t a well-rounded schedule at all. It was hard, hard work, all the time – hours and hours and hours of homework.
Ben Gibbard
Becoming a parent has changed the risk calculus for me. But it might be age, too, and seeing a lot of friends die in the mountains. Will I take the same risks I took in my 20s? Probably not, but I will always push myself in the mountains.
Jimmy Chin
Aerodynamics is mathematics for those who haven’t learned to do calculus. In my case, too, for one who hasn’t learned to add or multiply, at least the first time.
Richard Bach
In the calculus of western interests, there is no suffering, whatever its scale, which cannot be justified. Chechens, Palestinians, Iraqis, Afghans, Pakistanis are of little importance.
Tariq Ali
Calculus, the electrical battery, the telephone, the steam engine, the radio – all these groundbreaking innovations were hit upon by multiple inventors working in parallel with no knowledge of one another.
Steven Johnson
When I was growing up, I had lots of smart classmates that were girls, but none of us were really pushed into math or computers or anything like that. Girls took AP history and AP English and AP European history. And boys took calculus and physics.
Aileen Lee
To the degree that we can demonstrate support for the Ukrainian government, we can change Putin’s calculus and increase the risk to him and to Russia for moving combat forces closer to Kiev.
Mike Pompeo
This is a tricky domain because, unlike simple arithmetic, to solve a calculus problem – and in particular to perform integration – you have to be smart about which integration technique should be used: integration by partial fractions, integration by parts, and so on.
Marvin Minsky
The removal of people of Japanese descent from their homes and their incarceration in camps were executed with the same sort of political calculus of fear and bigotry that Mr. Trump is using to redefine American immigration policy.
Michiko Kakutani
Stephen Sondheim is calculus for actors. The words are witty and brilliant and profound but complicated.
Marc Platt
Gout produces calculus in the kidney… the patient has frequently to entertain the painful speculation as to whether gout or stone be the worst disease. Sometimes the stone, on passing, kills the patient, without waiting for the gout.
Thomas Sydenham
I certainly could’ve made a lot more money buying cheap ingredients, and people might not have been able to tell the difference. That was never a part of the calculus. It was not part of my DNA.
Steve Ells
You might be thinking that some people are just natural

You might be thinking that some people are just naturally good at speaking up, and others just aren’t – game over. Not true. Speaking up is a skill that you have to learn like any other, whether it’s speaking Spanish or doing calculus or changing a tire.
Rachel Simmons
The standard high school curriculum traditionally has been focused towards physics and engineering. So calculus, differential equations, and linear algebra have always been the most emphasized, and for good reason – these are very important.
Terence Tao
There’s a popular concept of ‘intelligence’ as book smarts, like calculus or chess, as opposed to, say, social skills. So people say that ‘it takes more than intelligence to succeed in human society.’ But social skills reside in the brain, not the kidneys.
Eliezer Yudkowsky
Newton, of course, was the inventor of differential calculus so his place in the tale is quite special.
