Proclaim Liberty throughout all the Land
unto all the Inhabitants Thereof

The Liberty Bell
(from Leviticus 25:10)

They that can give up
essential liberty
to obtain a little temporary safety
deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Benjamin Franklin, 1755

(Ben does not refer to the liberty to threaten or infect other people, nor to the safety obtained by vaccination and medically recommended precautions. Think what it means that we have to say this.)

"Those who can't teach, do."

"Those who can't do, preach."

So many errors are buried in “clearly, obviously” or “it is easy to see”. Many years ago my then colleague Juan Schäffer told me, “If it really is easy to see, it is easy to give the reason.”

—Jonathan Borwein, Generalisations, Examples and Counter-Examples in Analysis and Optimisation, page 10.

'Tis better to have loved and flossed
Than never to have flossed at all.

—after S.J. Bruskin, July 2014
