Does it matter? I am close but...


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.

Re: Deleting or editing images

There are two quotes that stand out in my mind right at this time...

Re: Deleting or editing images

I do not think thinking in other people words is a good thing.

What are the two quotes?

Third, if in doubt, shoot first then ask questions later. I would sooner accept a few casualties through accidents rather than losing the entire base and its personnel through carelessness.- Brigadier General Jack Ripper

RM: How is everything going today?

bobbym: Fine, no problems.

RM: Hmmm, if I thought that were true it would mean I did not properly understand the situation.

bobbym: ( after a few seconds of thought ) you are absolutely correct!

Re: Deleting or editing images

The first is inapplicable here. The second one I do norlt understand.

Maybe so but it did come to mind.

The second one is easy.

Re: Deleting or editing images

Sounds like a philosophical statement. You are talking to the wrong m. I like this one:

Luke: (annoyed) Oh, alright I will try...

Yoda No! Do or do not, there is no try.
