I have assuredly found an admirable proof … but the margin is too narrow to contain it.

To divide a cube into two other cubes, a fourth power or in general any power whatever into two powers of the same denomination above the second is impossible, and I have assuredly found an admirable proof of this, but the margin is too narrow to contain it. [Written in the margin of his copy of Diophantus’ Arithmetica]

— Pierre de Fermat (French lawyer and amateur mathematician, 1601? – 1665)
