    From one of the coolest people ever to have lived on Earth.... Sir Isaac Newton
    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    A man may imagine things that are false, but he can only understand things that are true, for if the things be false, the apprehension of them is not understanding.


    Errors are not in the art but in the artificers.


    I can calculate the motion of heavenly bodies, but not the madness of people.


    If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants.


    It is the weight, not numbers of experiments that is to be regarded.


    Tact is the art of making a point without making an enemy.


    To every action there is always opposed an equal reaction.


    To me there has never been a higher source of earthly honor or distinction than that connected with advances in science.
    Has Left Skadi. Bye!
