Euclid wrote: “There is no royal road to geometry.”

Adam H. Dickey wrote: “Figures are not things but thoughts; they are mental concepts, and as such they are available to every body.”

John L. Dobson wrote: “By the demise of those with poorer eyes, we gained our visual acuity, and by the demise of those with smaller brains, we improved our capacity to understand. It is that capacity which sets us apart amongst the watchers of the skies.”

Envision Euclid and Dobson together… as lizards, conversing.
