“Mathematics is a language. I would say it’s a language that wants to claim the existence of any other language, because it has tried to formalize what a language is. It is not a science. It is not exact. It has its own contradictions and conjectures, feelings and hopes.” -- Alessandro Masi, Math teacher at UWC Mostar since 2014

"Mathematics is the language with which God has written the Universe." -- Galileo Galilei (selected by Merisa Mujkanović, BiH, 2014-2016)

“"You can make your life happy in more than one way; you can transform the graph of a function in more than one way!" -- Comment in class by Alessandro Masi, Math teacher at UWC Mostar since 2014
