Calvin on maths… and life in general

“I’m not going to do my maths homework. Look at these unsolved problems. Here’s a number in mortal combat with another. One of them is going to get subtracted. But why? What will be left of him? If I answered these, it would kill the suspense. It would resolve the conflict and turn intriguing possibilities into boring old facts.”
“I never really thought about the literary possibilities of maths.”
“I prefer to savour the mystery.”
