Math is...

something to help you dream. Dreaming is like exploring a new land with nothing but the clothes on your back. You wander the woods, rivers, hills, and beautiful as it is, you have no idea where you are, and no idea where you're going. Sometimes you come back to the same spot, and without a map or compass you are, in the end, lost. Math is the map and compass that helps you navigate the land of your dreams. As you wander, you now chart the landscape, building an atlas by which to navigate this strange land. With this, you now know where you are - where you have been, and where you want to go. And so onwards you may dream; farther, bigger, deeper.
