Quotes / Isaac Newton

Nature and Nature's laws lay hid in night:
God said, Let Newton be! and all was light.
Alexander Pope

"This, recruits, is a 20-kilo ferrous slug. Feel the weight! Every five seconds, the main gun of an Everest-class Dreadnought accelerates one to 1.3 percent of light speed. It impacts with the force of a 38-kiloton bomb. That is three times the yield of the city buster dropped on Hiroshima back on Earth. That means: Sir Isaac Newton is the deadliest son-of-a-bitch in space!

"Newton was not the first of the age of reason. He was the last of the magicians."
—John Maynard Keynes
