If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants. (Isaac Newton, 17th & 18th century English scientist.)

Newton is credited with formulating the laws of motion and universal gravitation, notable achievements that have made his name famous. Yet, in the quote above, he demonstrates a great sense of humility. His accomplishments were made possible by other scholars and scientists whose work benefited his. It’s an example we would all do well to follow.

Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom (James 3:13).
