What goes up must come down.

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


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 seashore, 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.


We build too many walls and not enough bridges.


Truth is ever to be found in simplicity, and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things.
