Theorem of the day from Robin Whitty  Mathematician of the week 
Paul Erdős (1913  1996)
My mother said, "Even you, Paul, can be in only one place at one time." Maybe soon I will be relieved of this disadvantage. Maybe, once I've left, I'll be able to be in many places at the same time. Maybe then I'll be able to collaborate with Archimedes and Euclid.
Another quotation by one of today's mathematicians
Yesterday  Today  Tomorrow  Whole year
