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.

Hi Jane;

So good to see you!

A crazy man wrote:

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!

One is straight out of the book
