A Mathematician's Apology is a 1940 essay by British mathematician G. H. Hardy. It concerns the aesthetics of mathematics with some personal content, and gives the layman an insight into the mind of a working mathematician. It is, however, a very individual view as Hardy's opinions are not universally held by mathematicians.

These are just excerpts from the essay. its a great read, honestly, picky ANY paragraph and start reading, you'll see what I mean.
