After a good dinner one can forgive anybody, even one’s own relations. – Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O’Flahertie Wills Wilde)

During dinner, it may be necessary to excuse yourself for a telephone call. However, it is far preferable to have a phone brought to the table … as a general rule, white telephones go with fish and poultry, and black ones with anything else. If you are calling during dessert, a small after-dinner phone should be used … if you are satisfied, say something like, ‘Yes, it is a very nice, light telephone, with a good, clear tone and a smooth, almost velvety action.’  Miss Piggy

Benoit Mandelbrot The Fractal Geometry of Nature (1977

Why is geometry often described as cold and dry? One reason lies in its inability to describe the shape of a cloud, a mountain, a coastline, or a tree. Clouds are not spheres, mountains are not cones, coastlines are not circles, and bark is not smooth, nor does lightning travel in a straight line. Nature exhibits not simply a higher degree but an altogether different level of complexity.
