Isaac Newton

Isaac Newton (1643-1727)
“Nature does nothing in vain, and more causes are in vain when fewer suffice. For nature is simple and does not indulge in the luxury of superfluous causes.”
  • From Isaac Newton’s Principia: Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy (Book 3, rule 1), translated/edited by I. Bernard Cohen and Anne Whitman (University of California Press, 1999).
