Auguste Comte (19 January 1798 - 5 September 1857) defines Mathematics as "The science of indirect measurement."

Darwin (12 February 1809 - 19 April 1882) humorously quoted Math as "A mathematician is a blind man in a dark room looking for a black cat which isn't there."

Bertrand Russell (18 May 1872 - 2 February 1970) explains Math as "All Mathematics is Symbolic Logic" "The subject in which we never know what we are talking about, nor whether what we are saying is true"

Oxford English Dictionary (1933) defines Maths as "The abstract science which investigates deductively the conclusions implicit in the elementary conceptions of spatial and numerical relations, and which includes as its main divisions geometry, arithmetic, and algebra."

Encyclopaedia Britannica defines Mathematics as "The science of structure, order, and relation that has evolved from elemental practices of counting, measuring, and describing the shapes of objects."
