This seems nice, however it will probably filter the whole sequence and
only then take the head() of the resulting sequence.

Is there any guarantee that the evaluation of filter() will stop as soon as
an initial item is produced?

Truly great madness cannot be achieved without significant intelligence.
To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk
Never fight an inanimate object
To avoid situations in which you might make mistakes may be the
biggest mistake of all
Quality means doing it right when no one is looking.
You've achieved success in your field when you don't know whether what
you're doing is work or play
To achieve the impossible dream, try going to sleep.
Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.
Typing monkeys will write all Shakespeare's works in 200yrs.Will they write
all patents, too? :)
Sanity is madness put to good use.
I finally figured out the only reason to be alive is to enjoy it.
