In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

Re: De-

Gee Daniel, what about mine! Just because Jane is cuter than I am, in the right light I am cute too.

My family wanted me to be a banker but I was disinterested.

Light really doesn't suit me, I prefer fat-free.

I used to be a loan officer than I was discredited.
