Jacob Bernoulli quotes

“It is utterly implausible that a mathematical formula should make the future known to us, and those who think it can would once have believed in witchcraft.”
 Jacob Bernoulli 
“Even as the finite encloses an infinite series And in the unlimited limits appear, So the soul of immensity dwells in minutia And in the narrowest limits no limit in here. What joy to discern the minute in infinity! The vast to perceive in the small, what divinity!”
 Jacob Bernoulli
