First came counting, then came arithmetic,

Then came geometry in the baby carriage.

and

I think that I shall never see,

A thing as lovely as Geometry.

Whether tis nobler in the mind's eye

To play with shapes and other pictures

Or reduce them to funny scribblings called

Equations, beginning with Logic which spawned

Science on the one hand

And Mathematics on the other hand

And never the twain shall meet until Newton,

THAT is the question.

Hail Euclid!

P.S. Happy Mother's Day !
