Re: the meaning?

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.

Re: the meaning?

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.
Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?
Combinatorics is Algebra and Algebra is Combinatorics.
