## Throughout my whole life as a mathematician, the possibility of making explicit, elegant computations has always come out by itself, as a byproduct of a thorough conceptual understanding of what was going on. Thus I never bothered about whether what would come out would be suitable for this or that, but just tried to understand – and it always turned out that understanding was all that mattered. -Grothendieck

## A note on Impostor Syndrome (Hochstapler-Syndrom)

It is not uncommon in academia to feel as though one does not belong. Many feel like an impostor, unworthy of the praise/ accolades they receive, and feel afraid that they will inevitably be discovered as a fraud who is actually not nearly as talented or skillful as their peers. This feeling is called Impostor Syndrome (or Hochstapler-Syndrom), and the first step in overcoming it is realizing that you are not alone.
