"[GH Hardy] also, notoriously, wanted to keep mathematics pure, whereas I believe that the uses, 'the applications', are as important as the theorems proved. Neither proof nor application is, however, as clear and distinct an idea as might be hoped." -- Ian Hacking, Why Is There Philosophy of Mathematics At All?

"[...]
statistics is not just a branch of mathematics.
It is an inductive method, defined by its applications to the sciences and other areas of human endeavor, where we try to glean information from data."
-- RJ Little, JASA 2013 (*Fisher Lecture*)
