Sir Isaac Newton – on the Shoulders of Giants

My daughter Holly gave me a calendar for Christmas that offers a bit of sage advice each day. Today’s quotation from Sir Isaac Newton is as germane today as it was during his life 300 years ago: “If I have been able to see farther than others, it was because I stood on the shoulders of giants.”

What humility and gratitude from a man of such gigantic intellect and pivotal contribution to the world! We today are all beneficiaries of giants like Newton and others, on whose visionary shoulders we stand.

    So you think Newton was a gigantic intellect? Think again; he was one of many troublemakers. See here.

    Maybe we should say that he was a pesky academic with a gigantic intellect! 🙂
