A quotation for today
Isaac Newton (1643 - 1727)
I know not what I 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, whilest the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.
Quoted in D Brewster, Memoirs of Newton
Another quotation by one of today's mathematicians
