I was once asked why I like math so much.  I replied: "I take great comfort in mathematics."
The person was obviously surprised, stating that my answer was strange.
I said: "Not really.  Mathematics is the one place where there is a correct answer and if I know what I'm doing and do it correctly, I'll arrive at that correct answer.  That to me is comforting."
