algebra v. geometry

lillibridge geometry or algebra

“Life is a lot more like geometry than algebra.”
Lisa lillibridge February 12th 2014

I found this while cleaning up my desk and files this morning. I guess because my preference has always been geometry that I associate it more with the positive feelings than algebra. But, when I think about it—LIFE has a lot of variables. We are always wondering if X equals Y then what?

However, we also talk in circles, triangulate relationships and find people square. So, I guess life is both a lot like algebra & geometry. Some days seem to have a lot more clarity than others and accepting instead of fighting that fact can maybe make our lives a tiny bit easier.
