FC: THE EUCLIDIAN SCRAPBOOK: Yang Zhang
1: Euclid saw truth as a statement that was always right; he struggled to lay out ideas in math that were always right, and eventually succeeded. Euclid worked his entire life to develop the formulas that were needed in geometry and math. In doing so, he found a myriad of theorems and principles as a result. | Euclid worked very hard to develop his proofs in geometry.
2: Euclid demonstrated his pursuit for truth by working on his most famous paper, "Elements" to include many mathematical proofs that would still be the basis for proofs 23 centuries later from his time. | Euclid devoted many years to pursue his view of truth, in math.
3: In addition, Euclid helped to spread his knowledge and definition of truth indirectly by having them taught to his students in locations where they would be able to learn. By doing this, Euclid enlightened Athens and the people of the future, and so forth, connecting his ideas through time. | Euclid taught people in Greece his findings about geometry two thousand years ago and wrote a work on it.
4: Euclid's ideas about truth have been held up by more scientific people over time, as his subjects of improvement were mostly math. | Euclid's proofs for geometry have held up since his time to the present day because his idea of truth was very similar to others and that the proofs established themselves as the correct ones.
5: Euclid was remembered and honored for his results in pursuing his view of truth
