From one of my favorite purveyors of the human condition, Seth Godin:
"Today is Pi day, the 14th day of the 3rd month of the fifteenth year... 3.1415
Pi is our most famous irrational number. Not irrational in the sense that it's a foolish argument, a form of wishing for one thing while doing another. No, pi is irrational in a magical, beautiful sense. It can't be cropped off and fit into a box. The closer you look at pi, the more you see, forever....
To be transcendent and irrational is to always have a few more digits to spare, to demand that you not be rounded off and filed away. To be human."
