~Alexander Pope once said of Newton:
Nature, and Nature’s Laws, lay hid in Night.
God said, Let Newton be! and All was Light.~
~A scientist entered Newton’s study one day, and exclaimed, “My, what an exquisite thing this is. Who made it?” “Nobody.” replied Newton to the questioner who was an unbeliever. “You must think I am a fool. Of course somebody made it, and he is a genius."
Laying his book aside, Newton arose and laid a hand on his friend’s shoulder and said: “This thing is but a puny imitation of a much grander system whose laws you and I know, and I am not able to convince you that this mere toy is without a designer and maker; yet you profess to believe that the great original from which the design is taken has come into being without either designer or maker. Now tell me, by what sort of reasoning do you reach such incongruous conclusions?”~
