Geometry History & Quotations
1. Dictionary Definition: Geometry (ge-om-e-try) noun. plural: geometries. Etymology: linguistically from Greek:
to measure the earth.
= earth +
A branch of mathematics dealing with the relations, properties, and measurements of solids, surfaces, lines, points, and angles.

1. "There is geometry in the humming of the strings,
there is music in the spacing of the spheres." Pythagoras
Here is a link to Wikipedia, for Pythagoras:
And you can do a Google Images Search for pictures/portraits of Pythagoras.
(Note: Ancient historical figures, because there were no cameras then and few if any written documents, are often presented in images and text interpretations of strikingly different views.)
The cool thing about using Google Images Search Results is that each picture is connected to its original website location, so that it links you to a broad variety of biographies about Pythagoras and many different academic subjects and analytical contexts.
2. "And since geometry is the right foundation of all painting,
I have decided to teach its skills and principles to all
students eager for art."
The Web Gallery of Art
is a comprehensive website with links to his biography and his works of art, including this self-portrait he painted when he was 26 years old (back in 1498).
The Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History (from the Metropolitan Museum)
also includes works of art and his biography.
and here is a link to drawings by other artists of
Durer's original house
in Nuremberg, Germany.
3. "Music is the arithmetic of sounds as Art is the geometry of light."
4. "Space is not a passive vacuum, but has properties that impose
powerful constraints on any structure that inhabits it."
5. This is a group portrait from the
Solvay Physics Conference in October 1927
, in Brussels, Belgium.
These are 29 of the most important physicists in the first half of the 20th Century, leaving a legacy we all live with today...
They include 17 Nobel Prize Winners in Physics, including the ONLY Woman in the Group: Madame Curie, who also won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
