Words matter. These are the best Geometry Quotes from famous people such as Antony Garrett Lisi, Federico Garcia Lorca, Richard P. Feynman, Jacques Lacan, Erno Rubik, and they’re great for sharing with your friends.

What physics tells us is that everything comes down to geometry and the interactions of elementary particles. And things can happen only if these interactions are perfectly balanced.

The two elements the traveler first captures in the big city are extra human architecture and furious rhythm. Geometry and anguish.

Einstein’s gravitational theory, which is said to be the greatest single achievement of theoretical physics, resulted in beautiful relations connecting gravitational phenomena with the geometry of space; this was an exciting idea.

A geometry implies the heterogeneity of locus, namely that there is a locus of the Other. Regarding this locus of the Other, of one sex as Other, as absolute Other, what does the most recent development in topology allow us to posit?

I love the simplicity of the Cube because it’s a very clear geometrical shape, and I love geometry because it’s the study of how the whole universe is structured.

All one’s inventions are true, you can be sure of that. Poetry is as exact a science as geometry.

One geometry cannot be more true than another; it can only be more convenient. Geometry is not true, it is advantageous.

Projective geometry is all geometry.

Geometry is not true, it is advantageous.

One of the weird things about modern physics is that we do find there are apparently these other dimensions that we don’t directly experience that explain some aspects of the overall geometry and reality of our universe.

The geometry, the content, and the fate of the universe are all intricately linked. If you know two, you can deduce the third.

I’ve got a real sense of three-dimensional geometry. I can look at a flat piece of fabric and know that if I put a slit in it and make some fabric travel around a square, then when you lift it up it will drape in a certain way, and I can feel how that will happen.

The detailed geometry of the coenzyme molecule as a whole is fascinating in its complexity.

Everything one invents is true, you may be perfectly sure of that. Poetry is as precise as geometry.

I remember, at MIT, we had to write an essay about something mathematical that you do in your extra time. I basically wrote about how dance, to me, was geometry: it was all shapes.

A pool at the edge of the ocean is the simplest geometry, yet you feel connected to the sea. In a forest with the mountains in the background, you also feel the connection to nature, yet it’s a very complex geometry. I think architecture is about controlling these feelings.

I’ve learned that I’ve just barely scratched the surface of knowledge of the profession, and I have deep envy of and appreciation for filmmakers who really, truly understand the physics, the design of filmmaking. They can do story and color and composition and geometry and math and science all at once.

Mathematicians didn’t invent infinity until 1877. So they thought it was impossible that Africans could be using fractal geometry.

I was very slow in maths, geometry I actually enjoyed.

The citation for the 1971 Nobel Prize in Chemistry reads, ‘for contribution to the knowledge of electronic structures and geometry of molecules, especially free radicals,’ and therefore implies that the Prize has been awarded for a long series of studies extending practically over my whole scientific life.

Geometry was the first exciting course I remember.

Relying on the face might be human nature – even babies prefer to look at attractive people. But, of course, judging someone based on the geometry of his features is, from a moral and legal standpoint, no better than judging him based on the color of his skin.

I can’t stop biting my nails. It’s a bad habit of mine. I like anything to do with math and numbers. I know a lot of people don’t like geometry, but for me it’s fun.

While fractal geometry is often used in high-tech science, its patterns are surprisingly common in traditional African designs.

I think I still like science and art better, but geometry is a big improvement over algebra.

I was allergic to school. I was completely befuddled by school. I was trying so hard, but I couldn’t succeed. I took geometry for four years, the same course over and over again, and I did not graduate with my senior class. I finally passed geometry after doing summer school, and eventually, I graduated.

Crystals grew inside rock like arithmetic flowers. They lengthened and spread, added plane to plane in an awed and perfect obedience to an absolute geometry that even stones – maybe only the stones – understood.

If the chemistry is right between star and photographer and the geometry of the pictures pleases the star, often the two people end up with a long-term professional friendship during which they continue to work together and to produce highly personal images.

Not that the propositions of geometry are only approximately true, but that they remain absolutely true in regard to that Euclidean space which has been so long regarded as being the physical space of our experience.

The power of mathematics is often to change one thing into another, to change geometry into language.

The description of right lines and circles, upon which geometry is founded, belongs to mechanics. Geometry does not teach us to draw these lines, but requires them to be drawn.

Music is the arithmetic of sounds as optics is the geometry of light.

This is the first real evidence that we’ve seen now of high gravitational field strengths: monstrous things like stars moving at the velocity of light, smashing into each other, and making the geometry of space-time turn into some sort of washing machine.

There is still a difference between something and nothing, but it is purely geometrical and there is nothing behind the geometry.

I find purer philosophy in a Poem than in a Conclusion of Geometry, a chemical analysis, or a physical law.

You can’t criticize geometry. It’s never wrong.

The ballet makes us look at those bodies, it makes us listen to that music, it makes us wonder at the geometry, of the way they come together. The way that extraordinary space is controlled and given such emotional force.

A multitude of bees can tell the time of day, calculate the geometry of the sun’s position, argue about the best location for the next swarm. Bees do a lot of close observing of other bees; maybe they know what follows stinging and do it anyway.

I call it sacred geometry. When everything’s just right and it feels really balanced, so that when it unfolds to the next part, you feel totally familiar and at ease within the song.

And since geometry is the right foundation of all painting, I have decided to teach its rudiments and principles to all youngsters eager for art.

Geometry is moribund. I want a lilt and joy to art.

I am coming more and more to the conviction that the necessity of our geometry cannot be demonstrated, at least neither by, nor for, the human intellect.

I just toured around looking for fractals, and when I found something that had a scaling geometry, I would ask the folks what was going on – why they had made it that way.

I got into animals by drawing hair follicles. I liked drawing hair, and from that I got into feathers and fur, then into images of animals. The patterning is the same, but the proportions of the body change from one animal to the next. A lot of it is just geometry and consciousness.

One of the great challenges of modern cosmology is to discover what the geometry of the universe really is.

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?

It is hard to convince a high-school student that he will encounter a lot of problems more difficult than those of algebra and geometry.

I’d been doing projects outdoors for the public. I made pigeons eat geometry by putting bread out in rhomboids and triangles. I don’t know if this activity made sense, but the work was available.

Life isn’t about algebra and geometry. Learning by making mistakes and not duplicating them is what life is about.
