Evariste Galois quotes

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.
 Evariste Galois

 Evariste Galois 
An author never does more damage to his readers than when he hides a difficulty.
 Evariste Galois
