Quotes, thoughts and anacdotes
"I shall not teach my students untill they have tried and tried and failed. And then, if I give them an exmple and they will not infer the general case, I shall teach them no more." Confucius.
The worst thing a person could do when asked a question is, in my opinion, dismiss the question as foolish, or answer in a condacending tone. There is always the risk that the person asking the question shall ask nothing more.
"Better not promise, than promise and not keep." Kohelet.
Somehow, the best mathematics comes up in the shower (said at a lecture by Nobel prize winner Robert John Aumann)
"So we shall now explain how to read the book. The right way is to put it on your desk in the day, below your pillow at night, devoting yourselflf to the reading, and solving the exercises till you know it by heart. Unfortunately, I suspect the reader is looking for advice on how not to read, i.e. what to skip, and even better, how to read only some isolated highlights." S. Sellah, Classification Theory.
