Blog Network: SEO Content Writing MathematicsDeveloper DiaryLiving with BipolarPortfolio

Early on, I wrote about G.H. Hardy reflecting on some quotes. In the first piece, I talk about is it better to burn out or fade away. Remarking that Hardy would not like me because I meandered and have not accomplished much in my life of any importance. He liked exceptional people and I don’t know if I fit that bill. In another piece, I talk about another famous quote from Hardy on genuine talent. Also surmising that Hardy would not like me because I have no real talent for mathematics yet I pursue it earnestly.

Today, I want to talk about struggling with mathematics. I think the best way to do this is by reacting to something G.H. Hardy said.

While doing some research on Hardy, I came across a blog by Maria Popova of Brain Pickings. I was overjoyed to see one of my favorite writers talk about my favorite mathematician. In her writing, she tackles the ideas of what we make of talent and ambition.
