„Jestliže někdy platí, že nutnost je matkou invence, pak je rovněž možné, že ohrožení je matkou kryptoanalýzy.“ The Code Book: The Science of Secrecy from Ancient Egypt to Quantum Cryptography

„Po první světové válce se Spojenci nebáli nikoho.“ The Code Book: The Science of Secrecy from Ancient Egypt to Quantum Cryptography


„Správné použití kvalitní šifry je velkou pomocí pro obě komunikující strany, avšak nekorektní zacházení se slabou šifrou může vyvolat velmi falešný pocit bezpečí.“ The Code Book: The Science of Secrecy from Ancient Egypt to Quantum Cryptography

„Naštěstí nahoře nevěděli, že Turing je homosexuál, jinak bychom také mohli prohrát válku.“ The Code Book: The Science of Secrecy from Ancient Egypt to Quantum Cryptography

„Romantics might like to think of themselves as being composed of stardust. Cynics might prefer to think of themselves as nuclear waste.“

„All that was required to measure the planet was a man with a stick and a brain. In other words, couple an intellect with some experimental apparatus and almost anything seems achievable.“ Big Bang: The Origin of the Universe

„An astronomer, a physicist, and a mathematician (it is said) were holidaying in Scotland. Glancing from a train window, they observed a black sheep in the middle of a field. “How interesting,” observed the astronomer, “all Scottish sheep are black!” To which the physicist responded, “No, no! Some Scottish sheep are black!” The mathematician gazed heavenward in supplication, and then intoned, “In Scotland there exists at least one field, containing at least one sheep, at least one side of which is black.“ The Simpsons and Their Mathematical Secrets

„God exists since mathematics is consistent, and the Devil exists since we cannot prove it.“ Fermat's Last Theorem


„if N is large enough, it is virtually impossible to deduce p and q from N, and this is perhaps the most beautiful and elegant aspect of the RSA asymmetric cipher.“ The Code Book: The Science of Secrecy from Ancient Egypt to Quantum Cryptography

„Pascal was even convinced that he could use his theories to justify a belief in God. He stated that ‘the excitement that a gambler feels when making a bet is equal to the amount he might win multiplied by the probability of winning it’. He then argued that the possible prize of eternal happiness has an infinite value and that the probability of entering heaven by leading a virtuous life, no matter how small, is certainly finite. Therefore, according to Pascal’s definition, religion was a game of infinite excitement and one worth playing, because multiplying an infinite prize by a finite probability results in infinity.“ Fermat's Last Theorem

„if a message protected by quantum cryptography were ever to be deciphered, it would mean that quantum theory is flawed“ The Code Book: The Science of Secrecy from Ancient Egypt to Quantum Cryptography

„Enigma was considered invulnerable, until the Poles revealed its weaknesses.“ The Code Book: The Science of Secrecy from Ancient Egypt to Quantum Cryptography


„Similarly, if you’re trying to prove something mathematically, it’s possible that no proof exists.“ The Simpsons and Their Mathematical Secrets

„This apparently innocuous observation would lead to the first great breakthrough in cryptanalysis.“ The Code Book: The Science of Secrecy from Ancient Egypt to Quantum Cryptography

„The NSA employs more mathematicians, buys more computer hardware, and intercepts more messages than any other organization in the world.“ The Code Book: The Science of Secrecy from Ancient Egypt to Quantum Cryptography

„A mathematician is a machine for turning coffee into theorems.“ The Simpsons and Their Mathematical Secrets
