A quotation for today

Louis Poinsot (1777 - 1859)

Everyone makes for himself a clear idea of the motion of a point, that is to say, of the motion of a corpuscle which one supposes to be infinitely small, and which one reduces by thought in some way to a mathematical point.

Théorie nouvelle de la rotation des corps (1834)
