--Everything one invents is true, you may be perfectly sure of that. Poetry is as precise as geometry. Gustave Flaubert 
Poetry, True, May

--There is geometry in the humming of the strings, there is music in the spacing of the spheres. Pythagoras 
Music, Strings, Humming

--Poetry is as precise a thing as geometry.
Gustave Flaubert 
Poetry, Precise

--All one's inventions are true, you can be sure of that. Poetry is as exact a science as geometry. Gustave Flaubert 
Science, Poetry, True

--People were going to geometry class and I was swimming through vats of chili on 'Even Stevens.' It was like a dream! Shia LaBeouf 
Dream, Class, Swimming

--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. E. W. Howe 
Hard, Problems, Difficult

--I was very slow in maths, geometry I actually enjoyed.
Liam Neeson 
Actually, Enjoyed, Slow

--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. Vivienne Westwood 

Travel, Real, Happen

--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. Lewis Thomas 

Time, Best, Sun

--In terms of individuals who actually inspired me, very few of the academic people that I had access to had that power over me. Maybe it's simply because I wasn't that committed to geometry. Twyla Tharp 

Power, Few, Inspired

--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. Annie Dillard 

Rock, Perfect, Flowers

--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. Carl Friedrich Gauss 
Human, Cannot, Nor
There is still a difference between something and nothing, but it is purely geometrical and there is nothing behind the geometry. Martin Gardner 
Between, Difference, Behind

--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? Jacques Lacan 

Sex, Recent, Absolute

--We learned to put discipline in the haircuts by using actual geometry, actual architectural shapes and bone structure. The cut had to be perfect and layered beautifully, so that when a woman shook it, it just fell back in. Vidal Sassoon 

Woman, Perfect, Learned

--Music is the arithmetic of sounds as optics is the geometry of light. Claude Debussy 
Music, Light, Sounds

--Geometry is not true, it is advantageous.
Henri Poincare 
True

--It has adopted the geometry most advantageous to the species or, in other words, the most convenient. Henri Poincare 
Words, Adopted, Convenient

--One geometry cannot be more true than another; it can only be more convenient. Geometry is not true, it is advantageous. Robert M. Pirsig 
True, Cannot, Another

--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. Jason Mraz 

Song, Next, Within

--I find purer philosophy in a Poem than in a Conclusion of Geometry, a chemical analysis, or a physical law. Wilfred Owen 
Philosophy, Law, Physical

--I've always been passionate about geometry and the study of three-dimensional forms. Erno Rubik 
Study, Passionate, Forms

--I'd been doing projects outdoors for the...
