Knowing what to measure and how to measure it makes a complicated world much less so. If you learn how to look at data in the right way, you can explain riddles that otherwise might have seemed impossible. Because there is nothing like the sheer power of numbers to scrub away the layers of confusion and contradiction.

This quote is dedicated to my beloved Project Work supervisees who (think they) are getting hell from me from my (seemingly) incessant comments on their drafts.
For everyone out there who's getting stressed out by PW, have a look at this brilliant idea. (How's that for GOI?)
And if that idea doesn't work (I don't really expect it to), see these less funny resources for stressed out students:
- 'Stressed out over studying… tests?'- Counseling services, Kansas State University
- 'Stressed out!' – Go Ask Alice! Health services at Columbia University
