Don't we all wish we could write like the French mathematician Poincaré FROM The Black Swan by Nassim N. Taleb

"Poincaré became a prolific essayist in his thirties. He seemed in a hurry and died prematurely, at fifty-eight; he was in such a rush that he did not bother correcting typos and grammatical errors in his text, even after spotting them, since he found doing so a gross misuse of his time. They no longer make geniuses like that--or they no longer let them write in their own way."
