Renowned as the ‘Founder of Geometry’, ‘Euclid Of Alexandria’ was an eminent Greek mathematician. Not much is known about his early and personal life, however, he is considered to be the ‘Father Of Geometry’ for his monumental contribution in the field of mathematics. He expressed his thoughts, viewpoints and opinions on the subject in his book, ‘Elements’ which is regarded as the most influential mathematical works of all time. Since the time of its publication and until the 19th or early 20th, this book served as the main textbook for teaching mathematics. Euclid’s writings, thoughts, and works were heavily influenced by Aristotle, Thales, Pythagoras and Eudoxus to name a few. Following is a list of some popular and inspiring quotes and sayings by Euclid which have been extracted from his writings, thoughts, books, work and life.
