“The outlines of birds and beasts and sailing ships could still be seen in the apothecary's attic in Grantham, along with the drawings of men and mathematical symbols. But the boy who who had made them was gone. He had taken his notebook with him: his secret world of star names and tawny lions and golden ink made from quicksilver.”
Mary Losure, Isaac the Alchemist: Secrets of Isaac Newton, Reveal'd

“When your head is filled with things that other people don't seem to give much thought to - chymistry, star names, mandrake root, mathematicall magick - it can be hard to make friends. Being short, secretive, and smarter than everybody else doesn't help.”
Mary Losure, Isaac the Alchemist: Secrets of Isaac Newton, Reveal'd

“He could travel in his mind, though. He did it all the time.”
