...wo doch Weihnachten ist.

"I believe that mathematical reality lies outside us, and that our function
is to discover or observe it, and that the theorems we prove, and which we
describe grandiloquently as our 'creations' are simply our notes of our
observations. This view has been held, in one form or another, by many
philosophers of high reputation from Plato onwards..."

(G. H. Hardy, A Mathematician's Apology, 1940)
