QOTD: the equality of two numbers

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…

QOTD: the first of all problems

Quote of the Day – Mel Brooks on Joking

Mel Brooks has always cracked me up as a writer. Seeing a quick peek into his process is funny to me. This reminds me of the quintessential fish story. It was really, “THIS BIG.” or not. 🙂 I realised that all one really had to do was just observe. Observe and slightly exaggerate, and you…

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…

Quote of the Day – Sally Field on Self-Image

I really liked this quote. It was something that spoke to me. Mostly because I’m constantly thinking about how people perceive me and how I’m viewed in the world, sometimes too much. Sometimes I don’t care, but deep down, it affects me greatly. I was raised to sense what someone wanted me to be and…

Quote of the Day – Charles Schulz on Knowing the Answer

Today’s quote is a little jab at humor. Thanks Charles Schulz for giving us a moment of levity. Today’s grind is such that we might miss a few things throughout the day. So, when the answer hits you, take a moment and declare it. 🙂 I know the answer! The answer lies within the heart…
