“Choices are the hinges of destiny.”
Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras, called the Father of Numbers, is best known for developing the Pythagorean Theorem. He was born on the Greek island of Samos in 570 BC and moved to Italy, where he founded a religious school preaching vegetarianism and reincarnation. He believed that everything could be explained by mathematics and measured in rhythmic cycles. He wrote nothing down; some theories ascribed to Pythagoras may have been discovered by his followers. He died around 495 BC.
