“I can calculate the motion of heavenly bodies, but not the madness of people.”Isaac Newton
Margate, Kent, January 2020
As I strided along the seafront at Margate on Sunday morning, I was adding layers as I walked – scarf on, hat on, inner gloves on, outer gloves on. The sun was glorious; but the wind was biting, and was oh so skilled at finding gaps in my layers.
Then, in front of me, I spotted people removing their clothes!
And then running to the sea!
I watched for a while, in disbelief, but it was too cold to stand still. I left them to it and headed off for a cup of steaming coffee, with Newton’s quote bobbing in my head:
“I can calculate the motion of heavenly bodies, but not the madness of people.”
It’s time for a weekly quotation-inspired image.
