I found these on a post-it note from his book Topology. I took the class in spring 2000, which feels like ages ago. He ended up writing me a recommendation letter for grad school, so I suppose I have him to thank for where I am now.
- [2/22/00] (on the topological definition of continuity) “All this exists in the never-never land of abstract set theory.”
- [3/17/00] “History’s dead.”
- [4/7/00] “If somebody said I was completely normal, I’d hit them.”
I have more quotes somewhere in my notes for the class, but I have no idea where those are. I have tons of juicy quotes in my probability notes, but those have been AWOL for years, more’s the pity.
