A Statistician's Lament
“I’ve been studying statistics for over 40 years and still don’t understand it. The ease with which non-statisticians master it is staggering.” —Stephen Senn (Prof. U. Glasgow)
On the Relation Between Statistics and Mathematics
"... Statistics is a science ... and it is no more a branch of mathematics than are physics, chemistry and
economics; for if its methods fail the test of experience—not the test of logic—they are discarded"
-- Tukey (1953), quoted by Brillinger (2002)
