No number before zero. The numbers may go on forever, but like the cosmos,~ they have a beginning.

A Quote by Antoine de Saint-Exupery on childhood, age, wisdom, numbers, statistics, categorisations, and judgments

Grown-ups like numbers. When you tell them about a new friend, they never ask questions about what really matters. They never ask: 'What does his voice sound like?' 'What games does he like best?' 'Does he collect butterflies?' They ask: 'How old is he?' 'How many brothers does he have?' 'How much does he weigh?' 'How much money does his father make?' Only then do they think they know him.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery (1900 - 1944)
