the common sense

“I have photographed many people: artists, writers, and scientists, among others.  In speaking about their work, mathematicians use the words ‘elegance’, ‘truth’, and ‘beauty’ more than everyone else combined.”
-Marianna Cook, Mathematicians-

I loved numbers once.

The time has come to love them again, but first I must consider to learn them again.  Like a square in perfect peace, I shall return to my roots.  Hear, O students

the first rule of study:

Greatness in learning happens not in the student who can master every subject, but in the student with the heart to uphold every subject. For of such is the secret

to love numbers twice.
