„[At Princeton Samuel Wilks…] was the major interest for me… I did have a contact with Oscar Morgenstern… Von Neumann was developing theory of games at the time… but I must say, I really didn't understand it very well when he lectured it.“

„A mind of von Neumann's inexorable logic had to understand and accept much that most of us do not want to accept and do not even wish to understand.“

—  Eugene Paul Wigner mathematician and Nobel Prize-winning physicist 1902 - 1995

Biographical memoir: "John von Neumann (1903 - 1957)" in Year book of the American Philosophical Society (1958); later in Symmetries and Reflections : Scientific Essays of Eugene P. Wigner (1967), p. 261
Contexto: A deep sense of humor and an unusual ability for telling stories and jokes endeared Johnny even to casual acquaintances. He could be blunt when necessary, but was never pompous. A mind of von Neumann's inexorable logic had to understand and accept much that most of us do not want to accept and do not even wish to understand. This fact colored many of von Neumann's moral judgments. "It is just as foolish to complain that people are selfish and treacherous as it is to complain that the magnetic field does not increase unless the electric field has a curl. Both are laws of nature." Only scientific intellectual dishonesty and misappropriation of scientific results could rouse his indignation and ire — but these did — and did almost equally whether he himself, or someone else, was wronged.

„Well Marianne it's come to this time when we are really so old and our bodies are falling apart and I think I will follow you very soon.“

—  Leonard Cohen Canadian poet and singer-songwriter 1934 - 2016

"Leonard Cohen Penned Letter to 'So Long, Marianne' Muse Before Her Death" by Daniel Kreps, in Rolling Stone (7 August 2016) http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/leonard-cohen-pens-final-letter-to-so-long-marianne-muse-w433144
Contexto: Well Marianne it's come to this time when we are really so old and our bodies are falling apart and I think I will follow you very soon. Know that I am so close behind you that if you stretch out your hand, I think you can reach mine. … And you know that I've always loved you for your beauty and your wisdom, but I don't need to say anything more about that because you know all about that. But now, I just want to wish you a very good journey. Goodbye old friend. Endless love, see you down the road.

„Anderssen voiced it well when asked why he did not play as brilliantly as usual in his game with Morphy, when he replied: "Morphy will not let me."“

—  Paul Morphy American chess player 1837 - 1884
