Let say I want to draw a point and label it. The command I use to draw points is

Graphics[{Point[{0,0}], Point[{1,1}]}]

This draws the points $(0,0)$ and $(1,1)$. How can I label them in the resulting graphics as $(0,0)$ and $(1,1)$?

Here's a somewhat ridiculous way to achieve that:

 {Labeled[{0, 0}, "The first point"], Labeled[{1, 1}, "The second one", Left]},
 Axes -> False

    $\begingroup$ this has the added advantage of using the built-in algorithms for label placement. +1 $\endgroup$ – rcollyer May 21 '16 at 0:51
