G.H. Hardy: From an Indian clerk ill-educated in Madras. I would very highly value any advice you give me. Yours truly, S. Ramanujan.
G.H. Hardy: There are no proofs nor underlying laws that can determine the outcome of matters of the heart. Of that I'm sure.
S. Ramanujan: These steps you want, I do not know how to do.
Major MacMahon: Now, how high I have to go?
S. Ramanujan: P of 200 should do. I really can do it.
S. Ramanujan: Don't you see? An equation has no meaning to me... unless it expresses a thought of God.
Littlewood: Don't be intimidated. Great knowledge comes from the humblest of origins.
