Why do mathematics?

000d4-scan0001Number can’t insult you nor criticise you
Numbers are not wounded if you refuse to play with them
Mathematics uses logic and reason [ and intuition], unlike politics,
Numbers  don’t shout
Numbers can’t lie except when people misuses them in statistics.
Letters in algebra are abstract but more comprehensible than modern art.
You can play with a pair of compasses  all day
You can draw graphs and learn about shape
You can understand perspective[s]
You can use money safely
You can add up your bank account.
