Nanos Gigantium Humeris Insidentes: “Dwarfs standing on the shoulders of giants” is a Western metaphor meaning, “One who develops future intellectual pursuits by understanding the research and works created by notable thinkers of the past”; a contemporary interpretation. However, the metaphor was first recorded in the twelfth century and attributed to Bernard of Chartres. It was famously uttered by seventeenth-century scientist Isaac Newton (source: Wikipedia)
