2,126.  Life is not about finding our limitations, it’s about finding our infinity.  (Life's Like That & Infinity)  Herbie Hancock

 

 

2,733.  Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.  (Universe & Infinity & Stupidity)  Albert Einstein
 

 

3,226.  The mathematical objection is that as the clock is wound back and Hubble’s zero hour is approached all the stuff of the universe is crammed into a smaller and smaller space.  Eventually, that space will become infinitely small.  And in mathematics invoking infinity is the same as giving up.  Or cheating.  (Big Bang & Universe & Science & Mathematics & Infinity)  Horizon: What Happened Before the Big Bang?  BBC 2010

 

 

77,264.  Is the universe infinite?  Might every event repeat again and again and again ... Is the Earth just one of uncountable copies tumbling through an unending void?  (Infinite & Mathematics & Numbers & Universe)  Horizon: To Infinity & Beyond  BBC 2010 

 

77,265.  A google-plex has so many zero that there is not enough space in the observable universe just to write the number down.  (Infinite & Mathematics & Numbers & Universe)  ibid.

 

77,266.  Graham’s number is so big it even made it into the Guinness Book of Records.  (Infinite & Mathematics & Numbers & Universe)  ibid.

 

77,267.  In an infinite universe anything that is possible has to happen.  (Infinite & Mathematics & Numbers & Universe)  ibid.

 

77,268.  While no-one likes the idea of space coming to an end, the consequences of an infinite universe are even more bewildering.  (Infinite & Mathematics & Numbers & Universe)  ibid.

 

 

2,831.  The universe is infinite.  (Universe & Cosmology & Astronomy & Infinite)  Horizon: How Big is the Universe? BBC 2012

 

 

73,010.  No finite point has meaning without an infinite reference point.  (Finite & Infinite)  Jean-Paul Sartre

 

 

73,011.  Civilisation is the process of reducing the infinite to the finite.  (Finite & Infinite)  Oliver Wendell Holmes

 

 

72,012.  We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.  (Finite & Infinite & Hope & Disappointment)  Martin Luther King junior

 

 

73,015.  Our knowledge can only be finite, while our ignorance must necessarily be infinite.  (Finite & Infinite & Knowledge & Ignorance)  Karl Popper

 

 

77,262.  No matter what number you have in mind infinity is larger.  Professor Carl Sagan & Ann Druyan, Cosmos: The Lives of the Stars, 1979

 

 

77,263.  I can’t help it, the idea of the infinite torments me.  Alfred de Musset, L’Espoir en Dieu 1838

 

 

77,264.  I always found something repulsive about it.  Professor Doron Zeilberger, Rutgers University

 

 

77,265.  Imagine that all of you and in Hades and I am the devil.  I make the following proposition, I say: I’ve written down on a positive integer on a slip of paper, a whole number ... Every day you’re allowed one guess as to what that number is ... (Infinity & Number & Mathematics)  Professor Raymond Smullyan

 

 

77,266.  If we didn’t have infinite there would be no mathematics at this time ... Infinite for us has become formal.  (Infinity & Mathematics)  Professor Jean DieuDonne

 

 

70,719.  I could be bounded in a nut-shell, and count myself a king of infinite space, were it not that I have bad dreams.  (Dream & Infinity)  William Shakespeare, Hamlet II ii 251-252, Hamlet

 

 

70,720.  If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is – infinite.  William Blake

 

 

70,721.  The more you approach infinity, the deeper you penetrate terror.  (Infinity & Terror)  Gustave Flaubert 

 

 

70,722.  To see a world in a grain of sand and heaven in a wild flower

Hold infinity in the palms of your hand and eternity in an hour.  (Infinity & Eternity & Hour)  William Blake

 

 

77,262.  If any philosopher had been asked for a definition of infinity, he might have produced some unintelligible rigmarole, but he would certainly not have been able to give a definition that had any meaning at all.  Bertrand Russell

77,265.  All things were together, infinite both in number and in smallness; for the small too was infinite.  Anaxagoras, cited John Burnet 1920

 

 

77,266.  The infinite presents itself first in the continuous.  Aristotle 

 

 

77,267.  Aristotle had considered the question of whether space is infinite and gave six nonmathematical arguments to prove that it is finite; he foresaw that this question would be troublesome.  Morris Kline, Mathematical Thought From Ancient to Modern Times, Oxford University Press 1972

 

 

77,268.  The concept of infinity came in relatively late, even in Egypt, and ... its first fathers were more likely metaphysicians than theologians.  In looking backward, as in looking forward, early man was quite unable to imagine endless time.  Always he concluded that the animal creation, including his own kind, must have a beginning, and the earth he walked on, with it.  Sometimes he ascribed the act of creation to the gods, or to one of them, and sometimes he laid it to a potent being of lesser dignity, usually to a totem animal.  H L Mencken, Treatise on the Gods 1930

 

 

102,277.  Beneath the surface of the world are the rules of science.  But beneath them there is a far deeper set of rules, a matrix of pure mathematics which explains the nature of the rules of science and how it is we can understand them in the first place.  (Mathematics & Laws of Science)  Dangerous Knowledge I, BBC 2007
