A tech ed teacher, a math teacher and a physics
teacher were standing around a flagpole when an
English teacher wandered by.
"What are you doing ?" she asked. "We need to know the height of the flagpole," answered one, "and we're discussing the formula we might use to calculate it." "Watch!" said the English teacher. She pulled the pole from its fitting, laid it on the grass, borrowed a tape measure and said, "Exactly 24 feet." Then she replaced the pole and walked away. "English teacher!" sneered the math teacher. "We ask for the height, and she finds the length." 
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. Poincaré 
What you have been obliged to discover by yourself leaves a path in your mind which you can use again when the need arises. George Christoph Lichtenberg (17421799)
