Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.
I cant think of any definition of the words mathematician or scientist that would apply to me. I think of myself as a journalist who knows just enough about mathematics to be able to take low-level math and make it clear and interesting to nonmathematicians. Let me say that I think not knowing too much about a subject is an asset for a journalist, not a liability.

I gave my contribution; I spent five years of my life to work hard for other peoples interest. Its time to go back to science again. I have some wonderful ideas, I feel Im re-born.
