A quotation for October:

Evariste Galois (1811 - 1832)

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)
