“To myself I am only a child playing on the beach, while vast oceans of truth lie undiscovered before me.” – Isaac Newton

You may have heard of this guy, Isaac Newton. Kind of “discovered” gravity. Or, rather, formulated the theory of grativation used by modern science. Apple falling from a tree, and so on.

I love the humility of this quote, from one of the greatest minds ever seen in the fields of science and mathematics. I also love the perspective it gives, that even when we’re pretty amazing and at the top of our respective fields, our own opinions of ourselves ought to remain humble and curious.

That’s all for now.

With love,
