No computers in Emerson's time, but:

"We do not listen with the best regard
to the verses of a man who is only a poet,
nor to his problems if he is only an algebraist;
but if a man is at once acquainted
with the geometric foundation of things
and with their festal splendor, his poetry is exact
and his arithmetic musical."

I only know the one famous (variously attributed - Disraeli, Churchill,
Twain) quotation on statistics.... 

Now, if we can only convince Ronan Conroy to give us another poem....
