Without mathematics, there's nothing you can do. Everything around you is mathematics. Everything around you is numbers.
You develop a sympathy for all human beings when you travel a lot.
Education is not just about going to school and getting a degree. It's about widening your knowledge and absorbing the truth about life.
Why do children dread mathematics? Because of the wrong approach. Because it is looked at as a subject.
Numbers have life; they're not just symbols on paper.
