Blaise Pascal used to mark with charcoal the walls of his playroom, seeking a means of making a circle perfectly round and a triangle whose sides and angle were all equal.

Using these names he made axioms and finally developed perfect demonstrations, until he had come to the thirty-second proposition of Euclid.
