Looking for quotes on sequences, and fractals

  1. Apr 8, 2006 #1

    I'm looking for some quotes about sequences, fractals and chaos. Any kind of help is welcome.

    Thanks :)

    Is there such a thing?

    what thing? :uhh:

    alright, sorry. Since I haven't found any quotes about those above, there probably aren't many so I'd like to ask you for quotations that you like and think are wonderful. (Except for Einstein's and Gauss's)

    Hasn't anyone ever said something about sequences or fractals?

    This first link was nice. Which one is your favorite? I searched online but every website practically lists the same quotes. None of them are about what I'd like to have, but since I can't find about anything from above, I'm forced to just take general mathematical quotes.

    So far I chose,

    “The essence of mathematics is not to make simple things complicated, but to make complicated things simple.”

    S. Gudder

    “Mathematics possesses not only truth, but also supreme beauty”

    Bertrand Russell

    If people do not believe that mathematics is simple, it is only because they do not realize how complicated life is.

    John Louis von Neumann

    Thank you,

    Well, for sequences you might find some about primes.

    About fractals? I highly doubt there would be anything about fractals.
