Tarski and clarity

I’ve been reading some of Tarski’s logic papers again.  They are remarkable for their clarity.  It is as if the clarity of his writing alone makes his results significant even though I know that is not the case.

It seems there is an emotional side to understanding results.  When someone shortens the journey along the road to learning and understanding from an expected journey of days to one of a few hours, one sees and even feels a result differently.
