Mathematics may be defined as the subject in which we never know what we are talking about, nor whether what we are saying is true.

Or

Math is the language with which God has written the universe.

Math is a big pain in the butt. Just when you think you understand something, someone gives you a problem with only a slight difference to the ones you've been doing and your stumped again.

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.**

**I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.**
