"Gentlemen... it is absolutely paradoxal;
we cannot understand it, and we don't know what it means.
But we have proved it, and therefore we know it is the truth." ~Benjamin Peirce

From an interview with Christopher Zeeman:

- You built a world-class mathematics department from scratch at the University of Warwick when it was founded in the 1960s. How?
- I wrote to the six best topologists in the world asking them to join me. They all said no. So I wrote again saying the other five had agreed.
