Ada Lovelace Quote
Imagination is the Discovering Faculty, pre-eminently... It is that which feels & discovers what is, the REAL which we see not, which exists not for our senses... Mathematical science shows what is. It is the language of unseen relations between things... Imagination too shows what is... Hence she is or should be especially cultivated by the truly Scientific, those who wish to enter into the worlds around us!
Ada, the Enchantress of Numbers (ed. Cartech Incorporated, 1992)
