A quotation for May:

Lipa Bers (1914 - 1993)

... mathematics is very much like poetry ... what makes a good poem -- a great poem -- is that there is a large amount of thought expressed in very few words. In this sense formulas like formula or formula are poems.

Quoted in D Albers, G Alexanderson, C Reid, More Mathematical People
