Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac (1902-1984)
"It is quite clear that beauty does depend on one's culture and upbringing for certain kinds of beauty, pictures, literature, poetry and so on...But mathematical beauty is of a rather different kind. I should say perhaps it is of a completely different kind and transcends these personal factors. It is the same in all countries and at all periods of time." -- Paul Dirac
Dirac enjoyed mountain climbing and ascended several well-known peaks, such as Mount Elbruz in the Caucasus. He prepared for these excursions by climbing trees in the hills outside Cambridge, wearing the same black suit in which he was always seen about campus.
