    Consider Cantor: Died alone in an asylum. The father of "infinity". His last year, spent begging his wife to let him come home.

    Consider Pythagoras: Stared to death alone. After a "war" with another faction.

    Consider Descartes: Died alone, never married, one child who died at the age of five.

    Consider Newton: Died alone, in his sleep. No children. No wife.

    Consider Nash: Schizophrenic, one child. Whom he abandoned after learning is girlfriend was pregnant.

    Consider Bloch: Spent years in a mental institution. Killed members of his own family.

    Consider Turing: Killed himself. All alone, and utterly sad.

    Consider Tesla: Died alone, and crazy. Walking the streets muttering 3, 6, 9.

    Consider Einstein: Died alone, except for his nurse.

    This list goes on, and on, and on.

    What does it profit you...? To be the master of mathematics. To be the father, or mother of some such concept. To be a genius of invention's, and the master of physics. To be world famous for your undeniably glorious works. If you do not have LOVE.

    Each consideration given, are humans who lived without LOVE. Love is the greatest of all things. If you do not believe me, ask the ghost of Cantor, Newton, Einstein, and all the aforementioned. If you cannot talk to ghost. Search your own heart. Unless you are already void of LOVE. You will understand that what I say is the greatest of all truths. Love is the greatest of all things. Temper all of your mathematical, or physics works.....with love. Other wise they are useless.
