Pythagoras Quotes On Life

If you are like me, the name Pythagoras will probably bring back memories to you as a teenager learning about Isosceles triangles, Algebra, Theorems and equations such as “the sum of the squares on the legs of a right triangle is equal to the square on the hypotenuse”.

Pythagoras was an ancient Greek philosopher, mathematician, scientist and the founder of Pythagoreanism. His political and religious teachings influenced the philosophies of Plato, Aristotle, and, through them, Western philosophy. His philosophy also had a major impact on scientists such as Nicolaus Copernicus, Johannes Kepler, and Sir Isaac Newton.
