Actually, it's semantic:
--- c+d is not equal to: a+b/c+d -- John W Kennedy "Give up vows and dogmas, and fixed things, and you may grow like That. ...you may come to think a blow bad, because it hurts, and not because it humiliates. You may come to think murder wrong, because it is violent, and not because it is unjust." -- G. K. Chesterton. "The Ball and the Cross"
