Well, it's official. In one moth I will be walking across a stage, ready to receive a diploma! Well...it's not exactly the end of graduate school for me. I still have quite a bit to do this summer, but they're letting me walk early. And I'm not complaining. Anyway, in honor of being very close to being done with my coursework, I thought I'd share some really wonderful quotes from my professors. Most of these quotes require no math knowledge, so don't worry. They're just funny in and of themselves. As I take notes in class, I write down anything funny they say in the margins. It makes studying much more amusing.

It not so difficult to get A or B in this class. However, it not difficult to get D or F either.
By the way, the weather getting cold. Keep you warm. You cannot sick.
Student: It's cold out there!
Professor: I know. I fall.
Believe me. You have bright future. Study hard.
I don't like summation at all. I like integration.
I'm not going to do it for the discrete case, because discrete case very terrible. You have to do a lot of subtraction.
We are so lucky! Y1 and Y2 are independent!

In College Algebra we teach you how to solve linear equations and then quadratics. We give you some ideas for solving polynomials of degree three...some of them are totally worthless...
If you find what you are doing is difficult, don't worry. It's probably correct.
Professor: Pizza without anchovies is not a pizza. That's a lemma.
Student: Good luck proving that.
Professor: Oh, it's proven.

It can be an open set with boundary not of measure zero, which is a really terrible situation.
And now, one of the most glorious definitions of this class...
You look depressed. Let me prove a beautiful theorem for you.
It's like that movie Groundhog Day. Suddenly I wake up and I'm back to the Mean Value Theorem.
Wow! It smells so good in here, doesn't it? Or is it just me?
