Explanation of Phrase


"Let no one ignorant of Geometry enter here."

Tradition has it that this phrase was engraved at the door of Plato's Academy.

After studying mathematics in college, I was aware of Plato's phrase. When I started http://www.statisticool.com I wanted a similar phrase, but I didn't think the form of Plato's phrase was very inviting. Afterall, if you want people to actually learn a subject, you should not turn them away. Hence I came up with the phrase

"Let no one ignorant of Statistics leave here."

I hope this phrase clearly expresses my love of statistics and my goal for http://www.statisticool.com.
