„With me, everything turns into mathematics.
More closely translated as: but in my opinion, all things in nature occur mathematically.“

—  René Descartes French philosopher, mathematician, and scientist 1596 - 1650
Note: ""Mais"" is French for ""but"" and the ""but in my opinion"" comes from the context of the original conversation. apud me omnia fiunt Mathematicè in Natura is in latin. Sometimes the Latin version is incorrectly quoted as Omnia apud me mathematica fiunt.

„Mathematics is not just a language. Mathematics is a language plus reasoning.“

—  Richard Feynman, libro The Character of Physical Law
The Character of Physical Law (1965), Context: Mathematics is not just a language. Mathematics is a language plus reasoning. It's like a language plus logic. Mathematics is a tool for reasoning. It's, in fact, a big collection of the results of some person's careful thought and reasoning. By mathematics, it is possible to connect one statement to another. chapter 2, “The Relation of Mathematics to Physics”

The (Mis)Behavior of Markets (2004, 2008), Context: Contrary to popular opinion, mathematics is about simplifying life, not complicating it. A child learns a bag of candies can be shared fairly by counting them out: That is numeracy. She abstracts that notion to dividing a candy bar into equal pieces: arithmetic. Then, she learns how to calculate how much cocoa and sugar she will need to make enough chocolate for fifteen friends: algebra. Ch. 7, p. 125

—  Bertrand Russell logician, one of the first analytic philosophers and political activist 1872 - 1970
1930s, Context: Ordinary language is totally unsuited for expressing what physics really asserts, since the words of everyday life are not sufficiently abstract. Only mathematics and mathematical logic can say as little as the physicist means to say. The Scientific Outlook (1931)
