A quotation for August:

Herbert Turnbull (1885 - 1961)

The usefulness of mathematics in furthering the sciences is commonly acknowledged: but outside the ranks of the experts there is little enquiry into its nature and purpose as a deliberate human activity.

Preface to The Great Mathematicians (London 1929)
