Einstein: "You know, Henri, I once studied
mathematics, but I gave it up for physics."
PoincarĂ©: "Oh, really, Albert, why
is that?"
Einstein: "Because although I could tell
the true statements from the false, I just
couldn't tell which facts were the important
ones."
PoincarĂ©: "That is interesting, Albert,
because I originally studied physics, but left
the field for mathematics."
Einstein: "Really? Why?"
PoincarĂ©: "Because I couldn't tell which
of the important facts were true."
