The iron fist of the real, inside the velvet glove of airy mathematics. ~Gregory Benford, Timescape If two wrongs don't make a right, try three. ~Author Unknown Arithmetic is where numbers fly like pigeons in and out of your head. ~Carl Sandburg, "Arithmetic" Arithmetic is numbers you squeeze from your head to your hand to your pencil to your paper till you get the answer. ~Carl Sandburg, "Arithmetic" If equations are trains threading the landscape of numbers, then no train stops at pi. ~Richard Preston Even stranger things have happened; and perhaps the strangest of all is the marvel that mathematics should be possible to a race akin to the apes. ~Eric T.
