Jean-pierre Serre Quotes

Jean-pierre Serre Quotes: It strikes me that mathematical writing is similar to using a language. To be understood you have to follow some grammatical rules.

Some mathematicians have a good ear; some not (and some prefer the slangy expressions such as 'iff'). That's life.
