Nevil Shute
Differential equations won't help you much in the design of aeroplanes not yet, anyhow.
Shute quotes
It has been said that an engineer is a man who can do for ten shillings what any fool can do for a pound; if that be so, we were certainly engineers.
Shute
He was one of that great class of Englishmen who love their wives and trust them unquestioningly with their money and their honour, but are apt to hedge a little over their motor-cars.
