The Magic Word:
Which planet is closest to the sun? (hint -- it's Mercury...)




I had a feeling once about mathematics — that I saw it all. Depth beyond
depth was revealed to me — the Byss and the Abyss. I saw — as one might
see the transit of Venus or even the Lord Mayor’s Show — a quantity passing
through infinity and changing its sign from plus to minus. I saw exactly
why it happened and why tergiversation was inevitable — but it was after
dinner and I let it go.
— Winston Churchill
