I like the dedication of A Mathematician's Apology:

who asked me to write it

::gets down to reading:: Let's see if I can finish this (with notes) tonight; possibly even do some more research and write the damn paper. :P

edit: "For any serious purpose, intelligence is a very minor gift."

"Young men ought to be conceited: but they oughtn't to be imbecile."

moredit: "Good work is not done by 'humble' men."

moremoredit: "A man's first duty, a young man's at any rate, is to be ambitious."

Here, on the level sand,
Between the sea and land,
What shall I build or write
Against the fall of night?

Tell me of runes to grave
That hold the bursting wave,
Or bastions to design
For longer date than mine.

"Many people, of course, use 'sentimentalism' as a term of abuse for other people's decent feelings, and 'realism' as a disguise for their own brutality."

Uhh.. ::hides::
