In classifying writing styles one might distinguish between systematic Hegels and aphoristic Nietzsches, to use an illustrative example from philosophy. I am inclined to dispute the matter. The difference is real, but Hegels are only more or less verbose Nietzsches, Nietzsches still in their casting moulds, complete with pouring sprues and unfiled seams and flanges. They are unfinished or, let us be blunt, less continent Nietzsches.

If we could all exhibit this Nietzschean tersity, mathematicians might be more patient with verbal reasoning. – Mathematics is ultimately aphorism, indeed it is the ultimate aphoristic language.
