The perfect cup of coffee

There is an old Hungarian mathematics quote that I love to recite, “A mathematician is a device which turns coffee into theorems.”  Well, on Christmas morning, I received the perfect gift from my daughters to complement the quote. (To my fellow geometry fans, notice the choice of word ‘complement’.)

Let’s face it, this is my dream coffee cup … a cup containing 20 of the greatest achievements of human thought. Now each morning when I drag myself out of bed at 4:30, I will have a little inspiration to go along with the first cup, and the second, the third, and, of course, the fourth … you get the idea.
