A quotation for today

Leonard Roth (1904 - 1968)

Newton is, of course, the greatest of all Cambridge professors; he also happens to be the greatest disaster that ever befell not merely Cambridge mathematics in particular, but British mathematical science as a whole.

Quoted in D MacHale, Comic Sections (Dublin 1993)
