Stark and Bleak

Filed under: General,Geometry — m759 @ 3:33 PM

C. P. Snow on G. H. Hardy in the foreword to 
A Mathematician's Apology :

"… he had another favourite entertainment. 
'Mark that man we met last night,'
he said, and someone had to be marked
out of 100 in each of the categories
Hardy had long since invented and defined.  
STARK, BLEAK ('a stark man is not necessarily
bleak: but all bleak men without exception
want to be considered stark')…."
