Tengo's lectures took on uncommon warmth, and the students found themselves swept up in his eloquence. He taught them how to practically and effectively solve mathematical problems while simultaneously presenting a spectacular display of the romance concealed in the questions it posed.

His eloquence was a kind of intellectual foreplay. Mathematical functions stroked their backs. theorems sent warm breath into their ears.
