A quotation for today

Johann Regiomontanus (1436 - 1476)

You, who wish to study great and wonderful things, who wonder about the movement of the stars, must read these theorems about triangles. Knowing these ideas will open the door to all of astronomy and to certain geometric problems.

De Tringulis Omnimodis
