“Life without geometry is pointless”

"Life without geometry is pointless” (or “Life without geometry would be pointless") is jocular one-line saying that has been printed on posters, T-shirts and ecards. The popular math saying has been cited in print since a least 1991.

I like my room to set the tone as a fun place to learn math.  I have math comic strips up around the room (Frank and Ernest have a bunch of good ones), cheesy math posters (such as “Life without geometry is pointless”), and my new addition that I am VERY excited about is an algebra alphabet set that I made to hang around my room
