Citations for 07.09.2008

Probably it might be a good idea to make something like bash.org, but for aphorisms and interesting citations... Here there are a few I came across this week:

  • Young man, in mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them. John von Neumann
  • There are three rules for writing the novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.  W. Somerset Maugham
  •  Teach the Students You Have - not the ones you wish you had. If you get annoyed at students for being insufficiently prepared, or not as smart as you, you'll become a grumpy old fart, just like some of the lousy teachers you had. John Baez
