He was perhaps the greatest mathematician in history. His contributions are so deep and far-reaching that it honestly makes me incredibly relieved to know that he was able to make his contributions in his lifetime; where would we be without him?

There are many mathematicians that are the laborers of the field; they reap the seeds that the great innovators like Galois, Hilbert, Noether, Poincaré, Lawvere, Grothendieck, Riemann, Euler, et alii, have planted. They prove smaller results, shallower results, and solve plenty of the tough problems, but the innovators have had the real influence on the progress of mathematics. All of my respect goes to them.
