Isaac Newton Quotes: A Vulgar Mechanick Can Practice What He

A Vulgar Mechanick Can Practice What He Has Been Taught Or Seen Done, But If He Is In An Error He Knows Not How To Find It Out And Correct It, And If You Put Him Out Of His Road He Is At A Stand. Whereas He That Is Able To Reason Nimbly And Judiciously About Figure, Force, And Motion, Is Never At Rest Till He Gets Over Every Rub.
(from A Letter Dated 25 May, 1694)
— Isaac Newton —
