Sir, Sunday morning, although recurring at regular and well foreseen intervals, always seems to take this railway by surprise.
~ William S. Gilbert (November 18, 1836 - May 29, 1911)
The press, the machine, the railway, the telegraph are premises whose thousand-year conclusion no one has yet dared to draw.
~ Friedrich Nietzsche (October 15, 1844 - August 25, 1900)
I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only 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.
~ Isaac Newton (December 25, 1642 - March 20, 1727)
