A quotation for today

Charles S Peirce (1839 - 1914)

This branch of mathematics [Probability] is the only one, I believe, in which good writers frequently get results which are entirely erroneous.

Quoted in C C Gaither, A E Cavazos-Gaither, Mathematically Speaking (Bristol 1998)

Another quotation by one of today's mathematicians
