If one proves the equality of two numbers a and b by showing first that “a is less than or equal to b” and then “a is greater than or equal to b”, it is unfair, one should instead show that they are really equal by disclosing the inner ground for their equality. – Emmy Noether
I couldn’t resist an equality and math quote. I think, as a whole, we don’t really understand both. LOL
It is the first of all problems for a man to find out what kind of work he is to do in this universe. – Thomas Carlyle
Finding your path is hard. Sometimes, you just need a gentle shove in the right direction.

This is my 600th quote/photo of the day post. Who would have thought that this would have proven to be a fun as it has been. Things I’ve learned? I’ve become a little bit better photographer, no longer do I “luck into” as many photos, I actually see them as they should be. It’s been fun. It continues to be fun. That’s why I do it.

Today’s a good day for a little levity. George Burns was an icon for my entire youth, passing away in 1996, he was smart, funny and the personification of snarky. So, how much happiness do you want? 🙂
Happiness? A good martini, a good meal, a good cigar and a good woman. Or a bad woman; it depends on how much happiness you can handle. – George Burns
This photo, from the tunnel, is on The Challenge at Manale Bay, on Lana’i. Every single hole has breath-taking views. You almost forget about your scorecard… almost.
I thought today was a good day to quote Kurt Vonnegut. So, off I searched. I found this great quote which made me chuckle a bit, so, of course I had to share it with you.
You’ll forget it when you’re dead, and so will I. When I’m dead, I’m going to forget everything — and I advise you to do the same. – Kurt Vonnegut
