Mathematics is the art of clear thinking
Mathematics is the art of precise, clear, honest and general enough thinking. This, in the end, is the path tu success in any human activity. Too many graduates of various study fields enter their first work position to find that the only thing they really need is logical thinking, ability to work with data and some programming skills. They should have studied mathematics. David Bailey notes:
"It's worth doing. It's something that, I've never heard anyone say: I wish I didn't take so much math."
