Quotation of the day

From Évariste Galois
Unfortunately what is little recognized is that the most worthwhile scientific books are those in which the author clearly indicates what he does not know; for an author most hurts his readers by concealing difficulties.
Quoted in N Rose, Mathematical Maxims and Minims (Raleigh N C 1988).
