Quote from the past


  • The 19th century has just begun and Richard Trevithick's new cumbersome locomotives 'Pen-y-darren' and 'Catch Me Who Can' would change the world. Richard's misfortune was that he invented his machines 20 years before the world was ready to use them, and died pennilessly.


    Trevithick's inventions were noticed by a well known historical figure, and now your task is to unscramble a quote of his and tell who this great man was.


    Rules are simple

    1. Unscramble and rearrange the quote above consisting of 25 "5-character words", spaces included.
