My algebra was relatively poor. I found it very difficult to use equations that substituted numbers to which I had a synesthetic and emotional response for letters, to which I had none. It was because of this that I decided not to continue math at Advanced level, but chose to study history, French and German instead.
Tammet quotes
My relationship with scientists has changed. Now, they consider me more of a peer than a guinea pig, and I'm part of the scientific discussion.
When someone asks me, "Do you speak Breton or Inuktitut?" I say, "Not yet."

Tammet Daniel quotes
I had eventually come to understand that friendship was a delicate, gradual process that mustn't be rushed or seized upon but allowed and encouraged to take its course over time. I pictured it as a butterfly, simultaneously beautiful and fragile, that once afloat belonged to the air and any attempt to grab at it would only destroy it.
