Citáty Stanisław Ulam

„Given this optimistic nature, I feel this way even now when I am past sixty.“

—  Stanislaw Ulam
Adventures of a Mathematician - Third Edition (1991), Context: I was still very hopeful that much work lay ahead of me. Perhaps because much of what I had worked on or thought about had not yet been put into writing, I felt I still had things in reserve. Given this optimistic nature, I feel this way even now when I am past sixty. Chapter 10, Back At Los Alamos, p. 208

„I never really experienced a breakdown, but have felt "strange inside" two or three times during my life.“

—  Stanislaw Ulam
Adventures of a Mathematician - Third Edition (1991), Context: Thinking very hard about the same problem for several hours can produce a severe fatigue, close to a breakdown. I never really experienced a breakdown, but have felt "strange inside" two or three times during my life. Chapter 2, Student Years, p. 34

„For a few years I had an off-and-on romance with her.“

—  Stanislaw Ulam
Adventures of a Mathematician - Third Edition (1991), Context: Ada came from Lwów. She was a very good looking girl who was studying mathematics at the University of Geneva. For a few years I had an off-and-on romance with her. Chapter 2, Student Years, p. 45 (On Ada Halpern...)

„It is like hidden parameters in physics, this ability that does not surface and that I like to call "habitual luck".“

—  Stanislaw Ulam
Adventures of a Mathematician - Third Edition (1991), Context: There may be such a thing as habitual luck. People who are said to be lucky at cards probably have certain hidden talents for those games in which skill plays a role. It is like hidden parameters in physics, this ability that does not surface and that I like to call "habitual luck". Chapter 6, Transition And Crisis, p. 119

„I am turned off when I see only formulas and symbols, and little text.“

—  Stanislaw Ulam
Adventures of a Mathematician - Third Edition (1991), Chapter 15, Random Reflections on Mathematics and Science, p. 275

„The first sign of senility is that a man forgets his theorems, the second sign is that he forgets to zip up, the third sign is that he forgets to zip down.“

—  Stanislaw Ulam
Attributed in Paul Hoffman, The Man Who Loved Only Numbers: The Story of Paul Erdős and the Search for Mathematical Truth (1998) This has also been attributed, with variants, to Paul Erdős, who repeated the remark.

„What exactly is mathematics? Many have tried but nobody has really succeeded in defining mathematics; it is always something else.“
