My favourite quotes by Isaac Newton

  1. If I have ever made any valuable discoveries, it has been owing more to patient attention, than to any other talent.

  2. If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.

  3. 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.
