In mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Johann von Neumann
The sciences do not try to explain, they hardly even try to interpret, they mainly make models. By a model is meant a mathematical construct which, with the addition of certain verbal interpretations, describes observed phenomena. The justification of such a mathematical construct is solely and precisely that it is expected to work.
Johann Von Neumann
You wake me up early in the morning to tell me I am right? Please wait until I am wrong.
