A Link A Day # 45: Isaac Newton Quotes

If Newton had been a copywriter, he would have defied gravity. I say this because he was phenomenally precise in describing exactly what he wanted to say. Sample these if you disagree:

We build too many walls and not enough bridges.

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

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

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