It is not enough
to read without reflection,
to speculate without devotion,
to research without wonder.
Industry needs piety;
skepticism needs joy;
knowledge needs charity.
Couple insight with humility,
study with grace,
reflection with wisdom.
— adapted from Bonaventure (off-site)
L’algèbre n’est qu’une géométrie écrite;
la géométrie n’est qu’une algèbre figurée.

Sophie Germain

Programming is a pursuit in which an unintelligent machine demonstrates conclusively to intelligent people just what fools they are. Do you think that you are a clever person? Take up programming, and the computer will quickly disabuse you of this notion. The number of mistakes a human being can make in pursuit of solving some very, very simple problems is remarkable, humblingly so. — Anonymous
