AUGUSTUS DE MORGAN
English mathematician
(1806 - 1871)

One day at least in every week,
  The sects of every kind
    Their doctrines here are sure to seek,
      And just as sure to find.
      - in preface to "From Matter to Spirit"
        [Scripture]

I was x years old in the year x^2.
      - when asked about his age,
        "In Mathematical Circles" by H. Eves
        [Mathematicians]

It is easier to square the circle than to get round a mathematician.
      - "In Mathematical Circles" by H. Eves
        [Mathematicians]

Great fleas have little fleas upon their backs to bite 'em,
  And little fleas have lesser fleas, and so ad infinitum,
    And the great fleas themselves, in turn, have greater fleas to go on,
      While these again have greater still, and greater still, and so on.
      - A Budget of Paradoxes (p. 377) [Fleas]
