Clarity of thought or quality of Google Translate?

J’espère que nos neveux me sauront gré, non seulement des choses que j’ai ici expliquées, mais aussi de celles que j’ai omises volontairement, afin de leur laisser le plaisir de les inventer.

Descartes, Géométrie.

Translation by Google Translate:

I hope that our descendants will thank me, not only things that I explained here, but also those I omitted intentionally, to give them the pleasure of inventing.

[from Tasteful Algebra]
