- The formulation of the problem is often more essential than its solution, which may be merely a matter of mathematical or experimental skill.
- We can not solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them.
- If I had an hour to solve a problem I'd spend 55 minutes thinking about the problem and 5 minutes thinking about solutions
Let me tell you one thing. Mathematics is hard, very hard. I worked all my life to understand it, and it is still hard. Each day. You must be prepared to work just as hard, or you better not waste your time, better go out and work in the fields. -Aldo Andreotti
-"The mathematician does not study pure mathematics because it is useful; he studies it because he delights in it and he delights in it because it is beautiful" - Georg Cantor
