Carl Friedrich Gauss


"When a woman [Sophie Germain], because of her sex, or customs and prejudices, encounters infinitely more obstacles than man in familiarizing herself with their knotty problems, yet overcomes these fetters and penetrates that which is most hidden she doubtless has the most noble courage, extraordinary talent, and superior genius."
