 You are probably referring to Frege's Grundlagen, end of section 27:  "It
would be strange if the most exact of all the sciences had to seek support
from psychology, which is still feeling its way none too surely."

I have searched in all the obvious places but cannot find it.  It is
something like "it is odd that the most exact of sciences [i.e.
mathematics] should seek support from psychology, a science that is feeling
its way none too surely .." .

Grateful to anyone who can locate the source of this.  I had thought the
Grundgesetze, but it seems to have disappeared from my copy.
