Use the Stolz theorem.

The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
