Errors are not in the art but in the artificers.— Isaac Newton
If a projectile were deprived of the force of gravity, it would not be deflected toward the earth but would go off in a straight line into the heavens and do so with uniform motion, provided that the resistance of the air were removed.— Isaac Newton
Plato is my friend; Aristotle is my friend, but my greatest friend is truth.— Isaac Newton
