The world operates by number, by physical laws, expressed mathematically. If you know these, you will have a better grasp of things. And some possible job skills.

A scratch is nothing but the backcueing that you hear in your ear before you push it out to the crowd. All you have to know is mathematically how many times to scratch it and when to let it go — when certain things will enhance the record you're listening to. For instance, if you're playing a record with drumshorns would sound nice to enhance it so you get a record with horns and slip it in at certain times.
grandmaster flashThis elegant generalization is mathematically very appealing; but physics means facing facts. You should take up case by case.
We must not be enticed by mathematically attractive assumptions into pretending that the contingencies of men's social positions and the asymmetries of their situations somehow even out in the end. Rather we must choose our conception of justice fully recognizing that this is not and cannot be the case.
john rawlsModernity needs to understand that being rich and becoming rich are not mathematically, personally, socially, and ethically the same thing.
nassim nicholas talebA circle may be small, yet it may be as mathematically beautiful and perfect as a large one.
Each potential infinite, if it is rigorously applicable mathematically, presupposes an actual infinite.
A system is a way of going broke mathematically
There are numerous theorems in economics that rely upon mathematically fallacious propositions.
Dividing by zero...allows you to prove, mathematically, anything in the universe. You can prove that 1+1=42, and from there you can prove that J. Edgar Hoover is a space alien, that William Shakespeare came from Uzbekistan, or even that the sky is polkadotted. (See appendix A for a proof that Winston Churchill was a carrot.)
The laws of nature, as analyzed mathematically and descriptively by Ptolemy and Galen, bore an interesting, and perhaps not entirely accidental similarity to the law of nations and of nature, as discerned by a long succession of Roman jurists. ...The concept of an objective law applicable to human affairs, yet operating in accord with Nature and Reason and apart both from divine revelation and from human whim or passion, was peculiar to Rome and societies descended from Rome.
