Some mathematicians are birds, others
are frogs. Birds fly high in the air and
survey broad vistas of mathematics out
to the far horizon. They delight in con-
cepts that unify our thinking and bring
together diverse problems from different parts of
the landscape. Frogs live in the mud below and see
only the flowers that grow nearby. They delight
in the details of particular objects, and they solve
problems one at a time. I happen to be a frog, but
many of my best friends are birds.
