“Math tells us of the three saddest love stories…”

A math saying has been printed on many images:

“Math tells us of the three saddest love stories:
TANGENT lines that had one chance to meet and then parted forever.
PARALLEL lines that were never meant to meet.
ASYMPTOTE lines that can get closer and closer but will never be together.”


The math quotation has been cited in print since at least 2010. Authorship is uncertain.
