  • ISAC NEWTON

    Sir Isaac Newton (1642–1727)

    QUOTATION

    "I do not know what I may appear to the world; but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me."
