The problem is that we attempt to solve the simplest questions cleverly, thereby rendering them unusually complex. One should seek the simple solution. |
— Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (c. 1890) |
Thus you see, most noble Sir, how this type of solution bears little relationship to mathematics, and I do not understand why you expect a mathematician to produce it, rather than anyone else, for the solution is based on reason alone, and its discovery does not depend on any mathematical principle. Because of this, I do not know why even questions which bear so little relationship to mathematics are solved more quickly by mathematicians than by others. |
—Leonhard Euler, describing the Königsburg bridge problem in a letter to Carl Leonhard Gottlieb Ehler, April 3, 1736 |
