"Mine is the first step and therefore a small one, though worked out with much thought and hard labor. You, my readers or hearers of my lectures, if you think I have done as much as can fairly be expected of an initial start... will acknowledge what I have achieved and will pardon what I have left for others to accomplish." -- Aristotle (384-322 BC)
