Text Quotes

I wrote music as soon as I knew notation (Notation Quotes)
The process of writing has something infinite about it. Even though it is interrupted each night, it is one single notation (Notation Quotes)
The whole purport of literature... is the notation of the heart. Style is but the faintly contemptible vessel in which the bitter liquid is recommended to the world (Notation Quotes)
A good notation has a subtlety and suggestiveness which at times make it almost seem like a live teacher (Notation Quotes)
Sometimes I write them down in musical notation as a trigger to remind me about certain directions to go. Or I can be specific about a sound I’m looking for (Notation Quotes)
The difficulty, as in all this work, is to find a notation which is both concise and intelligible to at least two people of whom one may be the author (Notation Quotes)
During the process of stepwise refinement, a notation which is natural to the problem in hand should be used as long as possible (Notation Quotes)
Most programming languages are decidedly inferior to mathematical notation and are little used as tools of thought in ways that would be considered significant by, say, an applied mathematician (Notation Quotes)
That this subject [of imaginary magnitudes] has hitherto been considered from the wrong point of view and surrounded by a mysterious obscurity, is to be attributed largely to an ill-adapted notation. If, for example, 1, -1, and the square root of -1 had been called direct, inverse and lateral units, instead of positive, negative and imaginary (or even impossible), such an obscurity would have been out of the question (Notation Quotes)
I don’t mind that Bill Gates is a mega zillionaire; he’s done a lot of really interesting and innovative stuff.

(Notation Quotes)

My being a teacher had a decisive influence on making language and systems as simple as possible so that in my teaching, I could concentrate on the essential issues of programming rather than on details of language and notation (Notation Quotes)
To speak about notation as the only way that you can guarantee structure of course is already very suspect (Notation Quotes)
... the question undoubtedly is, or soon will be, not whether or no we shall employ notation in chemistry, but whether we shall use a bad and incongruous, or a consistent and regular notation (Notation Quotes)
Your remarks upon chemical notation with the variety of systems which have arisen, andc., andc., had almost stirred me up to regret publicly that such hindrances to the progress of science should exist. I cannot help thinking it a most unfortunate thing that men who as experimentalists and philosophers are the most fitted to advance the general cause of science and knowledge should by promulgation of their own theoretical views under the form of nomenclature, notation, or scale, actually retard its progress (Notation Quotes)
It is worth noting that the notation facilitates discovery. This, in a most wonderful way, reduces the mind’s labour (Notation Quotes)
It is possible, of course, to operate with figures mechanically, just as it is possible to speak like a parrot: but that hardly deserves the names of thought. It only becomes possible at all after the mathematical notation has, as a result of genuine thought, been so developed that it does the thinking for us, so to speak (Notation Quotes)
When I write a paper, I change my notation much more than I change my concepts (Notation Quotes)
The whole purport of literature...is the notation of the heart. Style is but the faintly contemptible vessel in which the bitter liquid is recommended to the world. (Notation Quotes)
