Johannes Kepler on Mathematics

"The chief aim of all investigations of the external world should be to discover the rational order and harmony which has been imposed on it by God and which He revealed to us in the language of mathematics....Just as the eye was made to see color and the ear to hear sounds, so the human mind was made to understand quantity." [1]

To learn why God is the best explanation of the applicability of mathematics to the physical world, see here.

Courage and Godspeed,
