This quick post is largely for testing purposes. It shares four motivational quotes that I carefully selected for the introductory page of the front matter of my PhD thesis.
The thesis, entitled Statistical issues in modelling and forecasting sequential count data, was examined by Prof James Taylor of Oxford University and Prof Williams Dunsmuir of the University of New South Wales. I plan to use this blog to revisit some of the main points made there, but for now here are the promised quotations in the original order.
We all procrastinate from time to time, and my favourite way to do that while working on my thesis was to read much of what Paul Halmos wrote. The quickest way to learn what he wrote about, and how, is probably by reading this article by John Ewing.
