21 April 2014

Haiku of the Day:

Aggregate demand: / Add up all the things we want, / then subtract the dreams.

Quote of the Day:

“Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty—a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture, without appeal to any part of our weaker nature, without the gorgeous trappings of painting or music, yet sublimely pure, and capable of a stern perfection such as only the greatest art can show.” –Bertrand Russell, The Study of Mathematics (1902)
