A quotation by Edward McShane
There are in this world optimists who feel that any symbol that starts off
with an integral sign must necessarily denote something that will have
every property that they should like an integral to possess. This of course
is quite annoying to us rigorous mathematicians; what is even more annoying
is that by doing so they often come up with the right answer.
