Snippet Sunday # 5

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

Sir Isaac Newton

Just trying to ease back in. This weeks quotation comes from Sir Isaac Newton. In it, he states that if he has seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants. To him, while a brilliant man, he understood that, others that came before him, lead him to make the conclusions he made. In other words, while his discoveries were under his own name. He understood that others whom came before him laid the foundation for his own understanding.

We too, stand on the shoulders of giants, and those whom came before us, those whom taught us, those whom raised us, all have a place in the truth of this quote. We make the discoveries we make, and live the lives we live because those who came before us created the foundation upon which we stand.

I guess that’s it for today, going to try to get in both normally scheduled posts this week.

Talk soon…
