„... it is true that a mathematician who is not somewhat of a poet, will never be a perfect mathematician.“

„You don't have to be a mathematician to have a feel for numbers.“

— John Nash American mathematician and Nobel Prize laureate 1928 - 2015
Context: You don't have to be a mathematician to have a feel for numbers. A movie, by the way, was made — sort of a small-scale offbeat movie — called Pi recently. I think it starts off with a big string of digits running across the screen, and then there are people who get concerned with various things, and in the end this Bible code idea comes up. And that ties in with numbers, so the relation to numbers is not necessarily scientific, and even when I was mentally disturbed, I had a lot of interest in numbers. Statement of 2006, partly cited in Stop Making Sense: Music from the Perspective of the Real (2015) by Scott Wilson, p. 117

Context: I do have an affinity for damaged people, in life, in roles. I don't know why. We're all damaged in our own way. Nobody's perfect. I think we are all somewhat screwy, every single one of us. Quoted in Bernard Weintraub, "Playboy Interview: Johnny Depp," Playboy (May 2004)
