After a long computation in his lecture led to the result 0 = 0, he first painfully suspected an error, but that he then regained his composure and said " 'Null = Null' ist ja ein sehr schönes und richtiges Résultat."
['Zero = zero' is a very beautiful and correct result]
W Ahrens, Mathematiker-Anekdoten (1920)
