Label Text:
"Mathematics is both an Art and a Science and beauty plays an essential role, a fact recognized by all mathematicians. The great German mathematician Hermann Weyl, one of my heroes, put it well when he said: 'My work has always tried to unite the true with the beautiful and when I had to choose one or the other I usually chose the beautiful.'" - Sir Michael Atiyah
