In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
No great discovery was ever made without a bold guess.

So good to see you!

As usual the clever attempt is wrong. You see math and cleverness just don't go together.

Yes, one is quite wrong, or maybe both!
