David Hilbert Wikipedia: David Hilbert  

Quoted by H. Eves — Mathematical Circles Squared, Boston, MA, 1972

My country is the world, and my religion is to do good.

And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country.

My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.

Inaugural Address, Jan. 20, 1961
