MATH – Mental Abuse To Humans

I have a very, very smart aunt. She has a PhD from Harvard. Recently she had to take a math class. There is something about math that scares the most rational of individuals. She started each class by saying, “Numbers are very small things. They cannot hurt me.”
"If there is a 50-50 chance that something can go wrong, then 9 times out of ten it will.” – Paul Harvey
"I heard that parallel lines actually do meet, but they are very discrete.”
“In real life, I assure you, there is no such thing as algebra.” - Fran Lebowitz
"In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them." - Johann von Neumann
