וזה ציטוט מתוך מורה נבוכים של הרמב"ם והוא מוקדש לאבא שלי.
...גברה שמחתי בך בשל האיכות המשובחת של דעתך ומהירות תפישׂתך. ראיתי את גודל תשוקתך אל המתמטיקה. לכן הנחתי לך להתאמן בה מתוך שידעתי לְמה אתה עתיד להגיע....
This is a quote from Guide for the Perplexed by Moses Maimonides translated by M. Friedländer 
"… I was still more gratified by the acuteness and the quickness of your apprehension. Observing your great fondness for mathematics, I let you study them more deeply, for I felt sure of your ultimate success…"
" I perceived that you had acquired some knowledge in those matters from others, and that you were perplexed and bewildered; yet you sought to find out a solution to your difficulty. I urged you to desist from this pursuit, and enjoined you to continue your studies systematically; for my object was that the truth should present itself in connected order, and that you should not hit upon it by mere chance."
